Bees of Monmouthshire Recording Project

Published: 15 April 2024

Ciaran Clark is looking to increase the recording of solitary bees (and other aculeates) in Monmouthshire and produce a county checklist. They will be running a couple of talks throughout the year; regular bee walks around the town of Monmouth and a workshop on bee identification.

Ciaran would love for people keen on recording and bee diversity in Monmouthshire (VC35) to be involved so if you’re interested, please join the FB group Bees of Monmouthshire Recording Project or email

I’ve also written a blog post introducing the project as well as one looking at one of the county’s newest residents.
