Bob Smith NDB – back by popular demand, Bob will be talking to usabout one of his favourite topics – bee space.

He willpresent an overview of evidence of national trends in UK insect populations,with a particular focus on butterflies and bees. Nick’s talk is titled: Where have all the pollinators gone?
