    What are the small bumble bees that are feasting on the cotoneaster?

    Our cotoneaster isn't in flower yet In fact the whole garden is way behind due to the cold weather.

    Hopefully this link to the Caithness Biodiversity Group website will open a link to a PDF of Caithness bumblebees prepared by the Bumblebee Conservation Trust.If the bumblebees you are seeing are about the size of a pea or baked bean it's likely they are workers. Workers are similar marking to their much larger mother the Queen bumblebee and there must be a successful nest nearby.http://www.caithnessbiodiversity.org...ss-sutherland/
