Bumblebees

Plates by Tony Hopkins and foreword by Mark Avery By Oliver E. Prŷs-Jones & Sarah. A. Corbet

 

As a simple birdwatcher I have always been a bit scared by the bewildering world of insects. Bumblebees provide an inviting introduction to this world, and this book is an excellent gateway into the fascinating life of bumblebees.

Found right across the Uk, including in my back garden, bumblebees are familiar as a group, but this book provides the means to identify those species and to understand much more about their variety of behaviour, ecology and lifestyles.

The threats to bumblebees are very similar to those to birds – changes in agricultural practice are of great importance. Recognition of this provides opportunities for the promotion of practices that should benefit the survival of healthy populations of both groups.

I’m delighted that this excellent book has been revised, enlarged, updated and republished. So delighted that, as I write these few words with snow on the ground outside my home, I am waiting with some impatience for the first sunny days of spring when I resolve to banish my fears and start getting to grips with these wonderful little beasts. Why don’t you too?
