This bees identification chart covers 28 species of bees which can be seen flying in gardens.

As well as the 'Big Six' bumblebees, the chart includes representatives of mining bees, cavity-nesting bees and cuckoo bees. Silhouettes next to each image show the typical life-size for each species.

There's a further bee identification guide on the reverse side, with a guide to flight periods, distribution of each species in Britain, and useful pointers to help distinguish between similar-looking species.

The bees identification chart was produced in partnership with Buglife.
