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.
The BWARS website is several years old and has not kept pace with technological developments. For instance, we know that the current website does not work well on mobile phones. So, BWARS needs to commission a new website but we need to understand how you use the current website, and what you would like to see in a redeveloped website.
We are very keen to hear your views. Your answers will help us prioritise the development of the new website so that it meets your needs.
