Nocturnal Tree Bee!

A Tree Bee (Bombus hypnorum) in the moth trap last week was a first for me. Apart from this one I've not seen one for a few weeks - perhaps they forage at night!

I had a Bombus hypnorum walk over my lap whilst watching TV at about 1am the other night.They seem to have marched across most of the country now...and perhaps you're right- they are active at night! John Woon
