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 Sutherland. This will be very helpful to our conservation efforts, especially if we are able to find any rare Great yellow bumblebees!
We’ll meet at 11am at the Polin Bay car park to co-ordinate, then head out to the machair area behind the beach. We’ll return at 3pm 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). Bring a packed lunch, stout walking boots/shoes, and come prepared for changeable weather.
