    I have seen more bees this year than any other year. Mix of bumble bees and the smaller guys. Something has changed.

    Very mild winter and good autumn. Also seen more queen wasps than usual too.

    Destruction of habitat and environment in Ireland is ongoing.

    A European Commission report published in May 2015 states that all of Ireland's wetlands have an unfavourable conservation status and are continuing to deteriorate.
    The EU Habitats Directive requires Ireland to provide an assessment of the status of our habitats and species every six years. The latest report from 2014 found many of our important habitats, such as peatlands, native woodlands and coastal habitats, are under continuing pressure.
    Of over 60 different species assessed in 2013 more than half (52%) were deemed ‘favourable, 20% as ‘inadequate’, 12% as ‘bad’ and 16% as ‘unknown’. The assessment report also found that bird species, such as the curlew and dunlin, are in major decline in Ireland.
