    Buff-tailed Bumblebee

    Fancy joining in a friendly NatureSpot competition?

    Our local bee expert Maggie suggested we might like to run a friendly competition. On 5.11.20 she spotted a Buff-tailed Bumblebee - Bombus terrestris - with full pollen baskets. This is unusual as while bees might have been disturbed and out and about occasionally, not many will be able to find enough pollen to fill their boots! However, two days later on 07.11.20 a Common Carder Bumblebee, Bombus pascuorum, was spotted, so a few are still around. Can you be (pun intended) the person to submit the last VC55 bee record for 2020?
