A record of visitors to Marsh Lane Allotments in Hungerford - some good; some not so welcome!
Could it be Andrena nigroaenea? Or maybe Hairy footed flower bee? I'll ask around
Oh I see someone already identified it as the common carder bumble bee. Bees are tricky!
Very tricky. Lucky my friend at work is a bee expert :-)
Please leave a comment. I'm very pleased to receive corrections or confirmations of my identification of the creatures we've spotted on the allotment.
