Workshop on an introduction to Solitary bees.

Solitary bees are amazing insects! There are about 250 species in the UK and they are our most efficient pollinators. This free workshop is an opportunity to learn more about solitary bees, identification of some of the commonly seen species and how to survey and monitor them. This workshop will promote the surveying, monitoring and recording of all solitary bees but will have a particular focus on the Mason mining bees, such as the Red mason bee (Osmia bicornis) which is currently spreading across Scotland.

This event will include both indoor and outdoor activities. Please bring along your lunch, sturdy footwear and warm clothes. If you have a hand lens or a copy of Steven Falk Field Guide to the bees of Great Britain and Ireland (publisher Bloomsbury) please feel free to bring along on the day.
