Bees, Hoverflies and Flowers: Pollinators and Pollination

Martin Harvey leads this course introducing a range of pollinating insects, including the variety of different bees and hoverflies: how to find them, how to recognise them and what their role is in pollination. We’ll be able to explore the rich flower meadows and hedgerows of Forty Hall Farm.  A number of projects have been set up recently to help record and conserve pollinators, and you’ll be able to find out how to take part in these.
