On Tuesday 14th June we hosted a bumblebee ID training day at Adhisthana. Participants learned how to distinguish between the most common bumblebee species, practiced catching and identifying bumblebees in the field and learnt how to set up a Beewalk. We were also joined by a film crew from WWF-UK who were capturing some of the action for a forthcoming UK nature conservation series. A big thank you to Dr Richard Comont who led the session and to Sanghadeva and his team for hosting us for the day.
