British Trust for Ornithology
Please note: BTO Surveys in the wider countryside - BTO’s senior leadership team has reviewed the government advice and is asking our networks of volunteers to follow the advice and remain at home. Do not travel to survey squares or fieldwork sites, or participate in BTO surveys and monitoring if by doing so you would be in breach of the government advice. Please do not leave your home to carry out a survey operated by BTO.
Bumblebee Conservation Trust
Official guidance from the 23rd March 2020 is to stay at home and to only go out for food, health reasons, or work (but only if you cannot work from home). You should not carry out a BeeWalk unless you can do so without leaving your property. Your health, and the health of those around you, is more important than bumblebee recording and you should not do anything to put it at risk.
If you spot a bumblebee you can record general sightings on the iRecord website or app, either as a one-off record or recording all your sightings. You can also carry out a Flower-Insect-Timed (FIT) count on your property.
