On 22nd September Jenn and Ian took this photograph of what they thought was a queen Tree Bumblebee.

Tree Bumblebee

This observation has now been confirmed by the Bumblebee Conservation Society and this dainty bee has been added to the species list. It has only recently arrived in this county and is the 35th new species added to the list since April 1st.

Our Christmas Raffle has now opened with the draw being made at the Christmas Party on the 14th December.  The two stunning framed photographs below have been generously donated as first prize by Richard one of our regular volunteers.  Second and third prizes are Christmas Hampers.  Tickets are on sale at £1 per strip and available from the Field Centre.
