June 2021: Forgotten Bees


In June we were joined by Hawk Honey, a naturalist who has studied bees and wasps for several years and is currently based in Suffolk.

He gave us a talk called ‘The Forgotten Bees’.

We learnt about;

  • The various varieties of bees and how they are identified
  • Why they are endangered
  • How their environment has changed over the last few decades
  • How we can help
  • What not to do when ‘trying to help’

It was a very interesting and enjoyable talk that raised a lot of discussion amongst the group.

We then split into breakout rooms for those who wanted to continue the evening with some much needed catching up.
