Thank you!! Someone else told me about this this morning, I was so unaware 🙈 I changed the setting so hopefully shouldn’t happen from now on.

In England the Species Recovery Programme budget has fallen from its 2010/11 peak of some £1.72 million to £700,000 in 2017/18 – a decline of 60% - it's no wonder we have problems

Didn’t see much flying today during my floral surveys, even though it was super sunny. Managed to get a peek at this little solitary bee though, I think it is a female Halictus tumulorum?

With all this sunshine you may have seen a few pollinators in your garden, trouble is they are on the decline. Why not help by donating to the science team who are researching the ultimate plants for pollinators!

In 2010 B&Q, Homebase, NGOs, and other sellers & even some peat extractors approached Defra & asked for a regulated end to peat sales. Defra refused to regulate & no-one is prepared to be the first to stop selling, so on it goes.

Yes an oil beetle, cute aren’t they! 🤗 Looks like a female Meloe proscarabaeus to me but I’m not 100% confident as can’t see thorax very well and still learning. After confirmation you should submit your record to for their Oil Beetle Hunt

In what way is not being “impartial” ? The science is clear - you have to stop putting climate change deniers up for “balance”. And your obsession with class - where has this come from all of a sudden?

Please don't feel anxious if your Red Mason are this active. They are males, searching for females. Male bees do not possess a . Female mason bees would only try to sting you if you picked one up & handled it REALLY roughly. So, sit back, watch and enjoy! PLEASE RT

For the love of god, Beekeepers please stop murdering our native European hornets! I’m utterly sick to death of social media posts of beekeepers bludgeoning to death Native Hornet queens. Justification is no different from those of grouse moor managers persecuting Hen harriers!
