2012 field season draws to a close

The 2012 Urban Pollinators project field season has now finished!

Thankyou to all site owners, site managers and garden owners in Bristol, Edinburgh, Leeds and Reading who allowed field teams access to numerous schools, parks, playing fields, car parks and more than 400 gardens.

Project staff are looking forward to well deserved holidays after 6 months of travelling the length of breadth of their respective town or city tracking down urban pollinators in gardens, cemeteries, allotments, parks, road verges and superstore carparks.

The 2012 field season has been challenging due to the weather conditions but we are pleased to report that despite the weather we have plenty of data to analyse.
