NEW: Videos in species accounts can now embed videos in its species account pages. We have added videos of Oxybelus uniglumis, showing a female around her nest burrow, then bringing in prey - a fly impaled upon its sting; and Osmia bicornis females collecting mud.


BWARS would welcome further videos ilustrating behaviour of species. Videos should be of reasonable quality. Please contact the web managers if you have material you can contribute.
