New Edition of Naturalists' Handbook 24-Ants

I am working on a second edition of my Naturalists' Handbook 24-Ants.  In the new ones, the colour paintings and line drawings (except for keys) are being replaced by photos.  I am hoping to take most of these and I am wondering if anyone is prepared to help me with precise locations of nests etc. for the more Southern and rarer species.  I live in Yorkshire so have access to only about 17 species in my own county.  I will send a list of what I need or post it on here later.  Any information would be helpful, but I have had very good experiences with lat./long.


Wanted urgently - video of wild bee on flower

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.

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.
