Join our survey to help us understand the way that climate change is affecting the behaviour of bees.
Most bees are inactive throughout the winter, however in recent years we are seeing more winter days when bumblebees and honeybees are active, particularly in the South of England. This is most likely due to our warming climate, with daytime temperatures now regularly staying above 5 degrees Celcius.
If you see any active bees in the last two weeks of December, please let us know. Send us your sighting using the form below.
It is likely that any bees you spot will fall into one of two groupings – either Honeybees or one of the several species of bumblebee. It is highly unlikely that solitary bees will be active during the survey period.
This survey closes at midnight on 27th December 2019 and results will be discussed on the Today Programme on Monday 30th December 2019 guest edited by Greta Thunberg.
