Bumblebee Blitz in Caithness @ Seadrift Centre, Caithness
Aug 31 @ 10:30 am – 12:30 pm

Are you keen naturalist, passionate about your local area? Do you have a strong interest in bumblebees?

We want you! We need to find and record what bees are where, what flowers they are feeding on, and what flowers are available for them to feed on at a number of locations in Caithness. This will be very helpful to our conservation efforts, especially if we are able to find any Great yellow bumblebees!

We’ll meet at 10.30am at the Seadrift Centre car park to co-ordinate surveys, then disperse to the locations we need to survey. We’ll return at 12.30pm to compare what we’ve found. If you have a net and a hand lens, please bring it (more will be available on the day to borrow).
