Bees

A large queen(white-tailed) bumblebee seen two days ago. Not long and they will be tucking themselves away over the winter period. Keep your eyes peeled for Colletes hedera on ivy flowers. This bee looks similar to a honey bee but is more heavily banded and has a gingery thorax. It’s moving northwards, but has yet to be recorded in mid Wales.
