I have received a few really good responses to my initial emails and everyone has said they are keen to help with the project. Marc Butterworth has even put me in touch with the Leeds Beekeepers Association (LBKA), so hopefully this will lead to more useful contacts.

Unfortunately, I’ve had no reply from Dr. Koos Biesmeijer. I didn’t expect to be contacted by everybody, that’s why I originally contacted several people for each area needed.
