Tree Bumblebees

Hi everyone 🙂

I was wondering if anyone has seen any Tree Bumblebees (Bombus hypnorum) on the reserve? They’re pretty easy to identify, big black bumblebees with a blob of orange fluff on their backs and white bums!

If anyone has, or does see one, could you please give me a shout on here 🙂 I’m hoping to study them for my dissertation and desperately need to locate a nest in/around Lancaster.
