The importance of Bee Indetification

There are 270 species of bee in the UK, and only 1 of them is a honeybee. The more we look the more we see, the more we plant, we save the bees.

I have added 2 Bees, the Ashey mining bee because I was shocked when I spotted it in my garden. As it wasn't on the chart I thought it must be rare! It is striking with it's black and white features, yet is actually more common than I expected.

 

The Great yellow Bumble bee because it was once fond all across the British Isles and now it's now only in the Highlands and islands of Scotland. I'd spotted one myself on the Machair of North Uist and am sure that if more of us look, and plant more wild flower areas, we can provide them with corridors to return to the rest of Britain.
