Trooper's Hill

Congratulations to all the Urban Pollinator teams across the nation. We have finished sampling all of our cities once! Now to do it all again…

The Bristol team have been held back somewhat due to the inclement weather, but we finished our first round on a high – both in terms of temperature and elevation! The weather for the week of fieldwork was extremely helpful, with temperatures consistently exceeding 25°C and beautiful blue skies. Trooper’s Hill – a nature reserve by the side of the River Avon with breath-taking views over south Bristol – was our last stop. A section of our transect was running through deep heather that was shimmering with bees. Three hours later, with considerable tan lines, we emerged triumphant with Bristol’s record haul!
