Bumblebee calls

2 in short succession yesterday

Easily diagnoses as bumblebees over the phone but I always ask for a photo to confirm.
You can see from the shape of the bees that they’re not honey bees.

These are at the soffits, and neither caller described a cluster of bees, just activity.


The second caller sent me a photo which when I zoomed in on I could ID them very clearly as bumblebees!
These were in a bird box – another classic home for bumbles!
