The characteristic buzz of a bumblebee is one of the best-loved sounds of summer. Many people are fascinated by these iconic, endearing creatures and want to know more, but a general introduction to them has not been available until now. This Bumblebee Conservation Trust book fills that gap by introducing these charismatic species to a wider audience. Written by Trust staff, it covers bumblebee biology, their decline and conservation and what you can do to help them in your garden and beyond. It also has an essential identification guide to all UK bumblebee species, packed with over 250 colour photographs.
"You would expect a book by the Bumblebee Conservation Trust to be well researched, clear and easy to use, and this book does not disappoint. [...] this is a great book for beginners and experienced recorders alike. It has everything you need to start recording bumblebees and, at a price of £10, there's really no reason not to get it."
