This bee, feeding on ragwort, has yellow band at the front of the thorax, and another at the front of the abdomen, and what looks like a yellow tail, although I am not sure that it is not a white tail with yellow pollen. It also seems to have very long legs. Any view would be appreciated smile I will put a face on view in the reply box.

Thanks

Louise

Hi,
It looks to me like a Heath Bumblebee, possibly a male, although it was maybe a bit too early for one.

Hope that helps!

I think it is a male because of the yellow hairs on it’s face, moustache but not sure what species.
