A FREE workshop on an introduction to pollinating insects.
Pollinators are vital in the production of many of our fruits including apples and strawberries, many of them are also visually very attractive. There are over 4,000 species of pollinating insects in the UK and this includes bees, flies, butterflies, moths and beetles! This free workshop is an opportunity to learn more about the diversity of pollinators, identification of some of the commonly seen species and how to survey and monitor them using Flower-Insect-Timed Counts.
This is an online event that will involve a presentation and then a Question and Answer session with the opportunity to share an image (or two) for help with identification.
