A shout out and thank you to those who also shared images or promoted the count using our #OzPollinators hashtag on social media.

And big thanks to those who wrote their own accounts of their Wild Pollinator Count experience, including one on the Strathbogie Ranges Nature View site by Bert (read his post here) and Andy Russell from the Southern Tablelands Ecosystem Park (STEP garden) at the National Arboretum in Canberra, who submitted 24 separate counts, 18 of them from in this special garden – thank you!

Here’s Andy’s report in the December STEP newsletter (page 8):
