Britain and Ireland are home to an astonishing 270+ species of bees, some of which play an incredibly important ecological role, pollinating our crops and wildflowers. Once you start being able to identify some of the different bees, spotting them and observing their different behaviours will prove fascinating and quite possibly addictive!
Spotlight Bees is a reliable fold-out chart that presents illustrations of 40 of our most widespread and familiar bees by renowned artist Richard Lewington. It will enable you to tell a White-tailed Bumblebee from a Garden Bumblebee, or a Patchwork Leafcutter Bee and a Long-horned Bee - and much more.
✔ Species are grouped by family and helpfully labelled to assist with identification.
✔ Artworks are shown side by side for quick comparison and easy reference at home or in the field.
✔ The reverse of the chart provides information on the habitats, behaviour, life cycles and diets of our bees, as well as the conservation issues they are facing and how the RSPB and other conservation charities are working to support them.
✔ Practical tips on bug houses, planting for pollinators and gardening for bees are also included.
✔ By Marianne Taylor.
✔ Published July 2020.
✔ Dimensions when folded 210 x 148mm (A5).
The ID Spotlight charts help wildlife enthusiasts identify and learn more about our most common species using accurate colour illustrations and informative, accessible text."
