Bombus Hynorum, aka Tree Bumblebee
Here’s another chance to do some doorstep conservation: The Tree Bumblebee began colonising Britain in 2001, and may now be feeding or nesting in your back garden. Conservation agency Arocha has teamed up with the Bumblebee Conservation Trust to study the bee and how quickly it establishes itself. They are enlisting supporters to look for it and let them know if they get a positive identification. Visit Arocha or BBCT for more details, and then get out in the garden and see what you can find.
