Cuckoo bees dominate...

On a recent visit to Lambert's Castle near Axminster, Andy Grinter and myself found a large number of cuckoo bumblebee species nectaring on bramble flowers. Six species of bumblebee were present but numbers were dominated by:

Bombus campestris: R. Harris
Bombus campestris: R. Harris
Bombus vestalis: R. Harris
Bombus terrestris (not a cuckoo species): R. Harris
 Bombus hypnorum was also noted in small numbers.
