Today I spotted a common carder bee (Bombus pascuorum) a type of bumblebee that I had not previously seen! They are found throughout the UK, and are the only widespread bumblebee species that is almost entirely yellow/ginger in colour. The one in my garden seems to be living behind the ivy that covers our back fence! There are a few other bumblebee species about – but they’ve not stayed still/come close enough for me to ID them.
