To celebrate the launch of its new website, The Bees, Wasps & Ants Recording Society (BWARS) is offering everyone the opportunity to download their 'Bees in Britain' guide for free.
The guide provides an extensive introduction to British bees, with background information, species descriptions, photographs, and identification help.
In 2011, OPAL awarded £5,000 to BWARS from the OPAL Grants Scheme for natural history societies to help them develop a new website with more than 500 species pages.
When the project is complete, these pages will include features such as photos, distribution maps, species information and identification tips.
