Mr Raymond Uffer visited us to lead a ‘walk & talk’ on our native wild bees. We started off with a short afternoon walk to Audrey Bugg's meadow, where we checked out the insect life, and then repaired to the Institute for refreshments and an illustrated talk. Raymond gave us a fascinating insight into the life of bees and other insects, illustrated by pictures from his collection.
