Following hot on the heels of the Great British Bee Count comes another bee count, only this time there’s certain bees you’re looking for! Queen Mary University biologists have released 500 bees from London rooftops and will be releasing more over the next few weeks. Each bee has been fitted with a tiny ‘license plate’
If you’re in London it’s up to you now to feed into the project by recording sightings and numbers if you spot any of the licensed bees. There’s a photography competition running where you can submit images of your sightings and they will use the data to build a picture of where the highest numbers of bees are spotted and the bee friendliest gardens.
You can find out more about the project and how you can get involved right here and we wish the project every success.
