Intermediate Bumblebee Identification Course @ Tyland Barn, Chatham Rd, Sandling, Maidstone ME14 3BD [Kent]
Aug 10 @ 10:30 am – 4:00 pm

The day begins in the classroom, with a discussion on bumblebee conservation and decline, evolution, lifecycle and their autecology. We will cover identification of all UK species, and there will be opportunities to view pinned specimens. In the afternoon, we will walk around the Tyland Barn nature reserve garden and meadows. Each participant will be given a net, hand lens and ID sheet for collection.

The objective will be to enhance participants’ knowledge and skills of bumblebee ecology and identification.

By the end of the session participants will be able to:

  • Identify all species of bumblebees found in the UK
  • Understand more about the lifecycle, conservation and/or ecology of the bumblebee
  • Learn about field survey techniques

Students should leave the day with a clear idea of how they can carry forward their interest and continue their study of bumblebees.
