Bumblebee Identification Courses


Buglife are running two Bumblebee Identification Courses with the Essex Field Club, at Essex Wildlife Trust’s Chafford Gorges Nature Park.


The Bumblebee ID course days will consist of a morning classroom session on bumblebee ecology and identification, led by the Essex invertebrate expert, Peter Harvey, followed by a walk around the site to practice the new identification skills. It will also include a session on how to use your new skills to help national bumblebee recording schemes. This is a great opportunity to learn some new skills and contribute to the conservation of bumblebees in the county. You don’t have to be a regular visitor to the site at all, as the survey methodology and recording can be used anywhere to produced valuable information for Bumblebee Conservation Trust

o   The courses are £10, with all of this going to the Essex Wildlife Trust’s Chafford  Gorges

o   Tea, coffee and biscuits will be provided

o   There are two workshops, but they will be the same content so you only need to go to one unless you’re especially keen!

o   The two dates are Saturday 23rd July and Saturday 13th August, both running from 10am until 4pm

o   To book, please call the Chafford Gorges Nature Park on 01375 484 016
