HWTs May species of the month is the Red-tailed Bumblebee. Pollinators have been getting a fair amount of publicity recently - and with good reason! Most plants rely on insect pollination to reproduce so they're vital for our eco-systems - and most of our food. This distinctive species is a good one to spot. Find out more on our webpage and let us know if you see these - or any other bee species in the county at www.herefordshirewt.org/recording or email email@example.com
