BUMBLE bee enthusiasts are being invited to monitor the diversity of the insects in Cumbria.

Cumbria Wildlife Trust is hosting an online webinar to learn the basics of bumblebee identification.

The 'Get Cumbria Buzzing! Project' wish to recruit volunteer recorders to help monitor the abundance and diversity of bumblebees in Cumbria, and will provide you with all the help required to get you started.

A spokesman for Cumbria Wildlife Trust said: "Your information will contribute valuable data to local and national biodiversity records.

"With your help we will be able to create the first Cumbrian Pollinator Atlas and will be able to track insect populations and movements. This valuable data will help inform us on the best ways to support pollinators across the county."

The webinar is taking place on June 22 from 1pm to 3pm. Tickets are available at cumbriawildlifetrust.org.uk.
