Guardian Article - ‘No one knew they existed’: wild heirs of lost British honeybee found at Blenheim

Good News Guardian article - Thousands of rare forest #honeybees that appear to be the last wild descendants of Britain’s native honeybee population have been discovered in the ancient woodlands of Blenheim Palace. The newly discovered subspecies, or ecotype, of honeybee is smaller, furrier and darker than the honeybees found in managed beehives, and is believed to be related to the indigenous wild honeybees that foraged the English countryside for centuries.
