As we now enter the Autumn and Winter many species are finalising their preparations for hibernation. The many species of bee we find in the UK are no exception. Here in Medway we have many types of bees, including the Honey Bee, different species of Solitary Bees and the big and bold Bumble Bees.

A recent programme gives a beautiful insight the life of the Buff Tailed Bumble Bee and you can find out about all things related to bees by having a look at the web site of the Bumblebee Conservation trust.
