I recently joined a group looking at bumblebees. In a quite small area, we found no less than eight species - most of them new to me! It is extraordinary what can be found, almost literally, under one's feet. It was an area where I frequently walk, unaware of this diversity. Interestingly the greatest number of bees was found, not in a nature reserve, but on an area of commercial farmland. Alastair
