I recently read a thread about young women in academia & what they should wear to be professional. Why, oh why, were the proposed solutions: - don't wear colorful clothing - don't wear "too much" makeup - don't wear "flashy" jewelry My advice: Don't dull your shine for ANYONE.

So happy that this morning not only did I see my first Elephant Hawk Moth, but we were also lucky enough to get a Small Elephant Hawk Moth in the trap too (which I didn’t even know existed!). As always thanks to for teaching me more and more every day 🤩

the EU made me use £2.3 million to provide training in plants and gardens for the health and wellbeing of people, wildlife and the environment AND if that wasn’t bad enough provided funding for 3 PhD researchers to help save pollinating insects - just dreadful!

Wales currently receives £680 million per year in EU funding, which is £245 million more than we pay in. Bloody daylight robbery innit

Yesterday I spoke to Prince Charles about my research and showed him some bees under the microscope. He was surprised by the size of the tiny Lasioglossums 😅 Not your average Wednesday! Photos by Tim Jones

Replying to @Sifolinia
Sounds good! Only saw monticola and lucorum and very few at that, thinking the weather must have been too hot for them as I was quite surprised by how little we saw.

Government admits that there has been no assessment of the impact of the roll out of 5G on wildlife or pollinators How can this be legal?

So pleased that one of the two species of bee we saw today on our trip to Herbert’s Quarry was the bilberry bumble bee (Bombus monticola). Not familiar with its occurrence in Carmarthenshire but a first for me, and saw at least 3 different workers! 🤩🐝

Wonderful to see Wool Carder Bee (Anthidium manicatum) - one of Britain's largest solitary bees - today. This male was busy defending this patch of Lamb's-ear - a valuable resource for females who scrape the hairs off the leaves and use them to line their nests.
