Rare bee thought to be extinct since 1946

7 posts in this topic

A rare bee thought to be extinct in the UK since 1946 has been rediscovered in Kent by a wildlife photographer.

Roger Tidman, 66, was in Dungeness when he unknowingly spotted a female Andrena vaga bee carrying pollen.

But although Mr Tidman was drawn to the striking grey-haired insect because of its colour, he had no idea it was so rare.

Nice to see a positive Bee story for a change.

Shame about the humour though guys :blush: and I thought my jokes were bad...

It's good to hear they aren't extinct . .. but with so many species (of everything) disappearing, i have to wonder if some others will now get out of control due to lack of natural predators and competitors ?
