Oct 2023 – Australian National Botanic Gardens

On 20 October Peter Abbott kindly offered to lead Field Naturalists on a walk through the ANBG in search of native bees. This followed on from his talk at our August meeting.

To take advantage of ideal warm and calm conditions, it was an impromptu outing with little notice. Even so, a group of six were able to attend. It was early in the season for bees, but there were enough to delight the participants for two hours. We were given a knowledgeable insight into a micro world often missed. Although the focus was bees, flies and other bugs were also keenly observed.
