The Bumblebee Sniffer Dog

The Bumblebee Conservation Trust has a trained springer spaniel which is helping them sniff out bumblebee nests.  The dog was trained by the Army's Defence Animal Centre at Melton Mowbray.  It is the scent of the bumblebee's nest that the dog hones in on.  He'll help the BBCT to find out the populations sizes of the rare bees they're trying to conserve.
