Woo Hoo

Let's hope Ms Truss shows some interest and intelligence in her new role!

All in my humble opinion obviously.

Regards

Dave

In which professional field other than " politics " can one, for example swop from health to education, without a single qualification in that field, and then make decisions affecting the lives of millions without any proper accountability? Not that I'm cynical!

Conserving wild bees

Research suggests that bumble bee boxes have a very low success rate in actually attracting bees into them. We find that if you create an environment where first of all you can attract mice inside, such as a pile of stones, a drystone wall, paving slabs with intentionally made cavities underneath, this will increase the success rate.

Most bumble bee species need a dry space about the size a football, with a narrow entrance tunnel approximately 2cm in diameter and 20 cm long. Most species nest underground along the base of a linear feature such as a hedge or wall. Sites need to be sheltered and out of direct sunlight.

There is a spectacular display of wild bee hotels here
