Dr Rene Van der Wal of the University of Aberdeen, will give this Aberdeen Entomological Club talk at the Aberdeen site of the James Hutton Institute.

He will talk about Bee Watch, a project set up in conjunction with the Bumblebee Conservation Trust, to help map the UK's bumblebee population with the help of the public. Members of the public are asked to photograph bees in their gardens and submit them to the Bee Watch website, which enables scientists to map the population and also helps members of the public to identify the bees they are photographing.

The talks begin at 4pm with light refreshments available from 3.30pm. For further information contact Jenni Stockan.
