Pollinator surveyors needed!

 Beautiful……and not just beautiful but productive too! Increasing the numbers of pollinators and biodiversity in Keynsham. The wildflowers were planted as part of the  RHS  ‘In Bloom’ celebration to mark the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee. Almost 20,000sq m of wildflower meadows were sown over the weekend 14 – 15 April across the country, marking the start of National Gardening Week and the launch of Britain in Bloom.

A Buglife/ RHS Pollinator Survey is now available online and they are asking people to take part now the flowers are in full bloom for the summer. The survey can be completed any time between now and the middle of September.

 The Pollinator Survey only takes 15 minutes to complete and your results will be used to help Buglife with important pollinator conservation work. We are asking groups to spend a short time watching and recording the different insect pollinators that visit your ‘Wild about Wildflowers’ cornfield annuals; corn poppy, corn marigold, corn chamomile, corn cockle and cornflower.

THANK YOU and have fun!
