If only bees could tell their tale – and they have

First posted in January 2021 and suffice to say that our pollinators are still very much in danger.

We are changing this world in so many ways and in some cases we haven’t got so much historical data to go by to see how much change is taking place. Thankfully, due to a PhD study on the feeding habits of bees in 1952 it was possible to repeat the survey in 2017 during another PhD research study to see what had changed. The data extracted shows how the landscape of the UK has changed in those short few decades, https://phys.org/news/2021-01-honeybees-reveal-floral-landscape-years.html, https://www.bbc.com/news/science-environment-55662985. Bees along with many other pollinators are suffering because of intensive farming and the increasing use of pesticides. Something that we should all be worried about.

I became interested in bees due to my wider interest in environmental change to human activity. So far I have written two stories for the 8-12 year old reader on the adventures of bees that face similar problems to real bees. In the first story, Busy Bee and the Endangered Meadow (two versions), https://www.amazon.co.uk/Busy-Endangered-Meadow-Paul-No%C3%ABl/dp/198320384X/, https://www.amazon.co.uk/Busy-Endangered-Meadow-Paul-No%C3%ABl/dp/B08BW5Y3CS/, the bees need to stop some greedy farmers building on their meadow. In the UK we have lost 97% of our meadows since the middle of the 20th century. Then in the follow up, Busy Bee and the Silent Spring, https://www.amazon.co.uk/Busy-Silent-Spring-Paul-No%C3%ABl/dp/B088JFN1ZV/, the bees have to solve the problem of a nearby farmer using banned pesticides. Although for younger readers a few adults have said that they enjoyed reading them too.

Britain is again going to start using a pollinator unfriendly pesticide

First posted in January 2021. Our pollinators are still in grave danger.

Seems like we can’t think of anything else to do but use pesticides, https://www.bbc.com/news/newsbeat-55566438.You have to ask why we need to grow the sugar beet in the first place. Couldn’t the farmers grow something else for a couple of seasons? Is it because food corporations want to stuff processed foods with sugar adding to the obesity crisis of the country?

Hopefully the next generation will put health before profits. In the meantime here’s a cautionary tale for those younger readers. A group of clever bees take on a farmer using banned pesticides in my story Busy Bee and the Silent Spring available from Amazon, https://www.amazon.co.uk/Busy-Silent-Spring-Paul-No%C3%ABl/dp/B088JFN1ZV/.

Farmhouse arrest – an illustration from Busy Bee and the Silent Spring

In Busy Bee and the Silent Spring all the creatures of Old Oak Meadow are feeling unwell. Something must be making them sick. They discover that the problem is coming from a farm next door to the meadow.

In this final illustration the bad farmer from the farm adjoining Old Oak Meadow has been arrested. This story is written for the 8-12 year old reader but a number of adults have also enjoyed reading it.

Some teachers thought that there is enough in the story to form the basis for a whole curriculum of outdoor and nature learning and all wrapped up in a story, children will love. The thing they liked best is the multitude of topics covered, all which are such important starting points for vital conversations with young people. The book has also been well received with the Scottish Beekeepers Association putting a copy of it along with the first book, Busy Bee and the Endangered Meadow, in their Edinburgh library.

The story is available as an ebook or in printed form globally on different Amazon websites and here are a couple of links https://www.amazon.co.uk/Busy-Silent-Spring-Paul-No%C3%ABl/dp/B088JFN1ZV/ and https://www.amazon.com/Busy-Silent-Spring-Paul-No%C3%ABl/dp/B088JFN1ZV/.
