Tomintoul: Introduction to Bumblebee Identification

25 August at 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

We’ll spend the morning in the classroom, starting off a journey of bumblebee discovery. Find out more about bumblebees, why they are so important to our lives and environment, how they support our farms and countryside and how we can help them in return.

Learn top tips for identifying our most common UK bumblebee species, as well as some of the scarce and local species found in the Cairngorms National Park. This event is suitable for beginners with no previous experience of bumblebee identification.

After a break for lunch (bring your own), we will re-group for an afternoon session and take your classroom-learned bumblebee identification skills in to the field around the beautiful Glenlivet estate, in the company of Head Ranger, Mark Johnston. Practice your field skills, learn how best to record your finds and contribute important scientific data to fill our knowledge gaps about bumblebees in the Cairngorms National Park.

Please bring your own packed lunch and suitable clothing for the afternoon, including walking shoes.
