Braunton Burrows in North Devon is four square miles of spectacular sand dunes, and home to a rich variety of plant and animal life. It is extremely important for bumblebees and holds Devon’s last remaining large population of the nationally declining Section 41 Priority species, the Brown-banded carder bee (Bombus humilis). Elsewhere in the county, it is known only from scattered records at a handful of sites around North Devon.
In order to comply with Covid 19 restrictions, numbers for this event are strictly limited and participants must be pre booked to attend.
This event is family friendly and suitable for older children. Suitable footwear and clothing must be worn to take account of the rough terrain and weather. It is suggested you bring a sun hat/ sun cream and water.
Alex Worsley is a conservation officer working on the Bumblebee Trust’s West Country Buzz Project. Prior to this he spent 6 years as a botanical surveyor with Devon Biodiversity Records Centre, carrying out surveys of County Wildlife Sites throughout Devon.
