First time I've heard a cuckoo in my home patch today (ancient woodland just outside Bristol), plus the first sluggish St Mark's fly of the year

Important new study showing serious harms to bumblebees from field realistic exposure to neonicotinoid insecticides. Foraging rhythms & sleep patterns that bumblebee colonies & the plants they pollinate rely on suffer significant disruption from neonics.

These were captive, flower-naïve bees, so the imidacloprid was provided as field-relevant concentrations added into sugar feeding solution. It's on p12 of the preprint, if you want the protocol.
