Attending the Royal Entomological Insect Festival York July 15
I must say that it was one of the most well organised and engaging of the many such festivals I have attended. The organisers and volunteers were so helpful and friendly. It turned out to be the busiest Insect Festival yet, with many people attending of all ages learning about invertebrates and the RES itself. I met several hundreds of people at my stand and answered many questions. I also met many interesting and knowledgeable people! Thanks to RES for making a great day, at a great location. It was a real pleasure to attend. I look forward to the next one in two years time.
Notice the Red mason bee cells inside the Nurturing Nature solitary bee nest box!
