Event description
An introduction to the ecology and identification of solitary bees, with a mixture of classroom and field sessions.

About this Event

The morning will be spent in the classroom finding out about the ecology of solitary bees and the best places to find them. There will be a further presentation focusing on their identification, which will introduce the different groups of solitary bees and highlight some of the more common species.

After lunch, we will explore the wildlife garden at Tyland Barn. There will be plenty of time to practise catching solitary bees with a net and having a closer look at them in the field.

There will be opportunities throughout the day to look at the different identification resources available for this group and there will be a chance to look more closely at specimens in the classroom.

It is expected that by the end of the day you will:

  • Have gained a better understanding of the ecology of solitary bees and where to find them
  • Be able to recognise some of the more common solitary bee species
  • Be confident catching and examining solitary bees in the field
