Hi Folks - I think that this is a cuckoo bee but I’m not sure which one, it was feeding on phacelia. Can anyone help? Many thanks!

Hiya,

I think that that is a B. soroeensis, but it’s hard to tell from that picture.

I thought that B. sorrenensis (spelling ?) was a rare / uncommon species.

So, I agree, try to get a better photo !

Yes, they seem to be most recorded in the North of Scotland, so if it is one then you’re lucky!

Thanks Guys - I have another photo but it’s blurred - I thought it might have been Barbuts Cuckoo but not sure - Will keep an eye out and hopefully see again. (I’m a flower farmer and have four acres of garden that I’m in all day so see plenty!)
