02-08-2011 : WHERE DO BEES PREFER TO LIVE

When questioned people would probably say that bees prefer living in the countryside but they are also happy in our towns and cities.

Although bee numbers are going down new research could show that they are thriving in urban areas because of our parks and gardens.

Currently there is a survey to find out where most of our bees are living and there will be teams of people are going around 12 cities in Britain counting the insects along a one kilometre line.

Bees and other insects do a really important job pollinating flowers and plants and expects are worried about their decline due to pesticides, diseases and changes in the weather.

At times it will be so peaceful on your Canal Boat Holiday that you will hear only will be the buzz of the bees.

In the still of the mornings or in the early evenings you may hear a splash which could be frogs hunting for flies or a fish jumping out of the water.

Take time on your Canal Boat Holiday and just stop and listen to the wonderful birdsong along the canal banks.

Listen for an owl hooting or for a nightingale singing at dusk or at first light listen for blackbirds, robins and wrens as the dawn chorus sounds the start of morning.

As you gentle cruise along the canals on your Canal Boat Holiday you will get back to nature and have a chance to see and hear it close up.
