Thanks Phil.

I volenteer at a nature reserve in Hitchin, this is going to be really helpful identifying a number of the plants that you don't find in the usual books available off the shelf.

I have one of my hives on a water meadow a few hundred metres from the reserve, hoping this year is going to be better than last, going on the current weather pattern, it's looking like another difficult year for different reasons.

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

More about bumblebees and solitary bees here
