This forum is a place to discuss matters related to BWARS and general matters related to aculeates.
It is not intended as a forum for identification queries. We may add this feature in due course, but meanwhile, if you need help identifying bees, wasps and ants, please use either iSpot or the BWARS forum on Yahoo.
Wanted urgently. A short video clip of a wild bee (NOT a honey bee) visiting a flower - about 30 second is good. This is to go on a Centre for Hydrology and Ecology project for farmers, but the need is urgent - by Monday 8th afternoon. Full acknowledgement will be given, but no payment is available.
If you have something you would be prepared to offer please contact Richard Pywell as soon as possible. firstname.lastname@example.org
BWARS Long Weekend Field Meeting in East Devon in conjunction with Clinton Devon Estates and the RSPB
The event is being organised to better understand the aculeate fauna of the Pebblebed Heaths which have been under recorded for a considerable number of years.
The vast majority of these extensive lowland heaths are within the ownership of Clinton Devon Estates who have kindly agreed to host this event. The heaths are managed by a consortium of interested parties including the RSPB and the Pebblebed Heaths Conservation Trust.
