March 1.  My first sighting for 2014.  Bufftailed queen, looking healthy and smart, scouring leaves for nesting site in the sunshine.  Bury St Edmunds       Kit

Nice record Kit.
Here in the North west of Ireland I am still waiting for my first spring queen.

Three queens out and about in Oxfordshire so far - terrestris, lucorum and lapidarius.  Always good when they start to appear again!

Bombus hypnorum queen seen in my garden, also Bombus pratorum.  No B. lapidarius or B. hortorum queens yet.  [and solitary Anthophora plumipes males & females that look like small bumbles].
Sunday was the best sunny and warm day yet, but overcast with a cool wind today.

Three species in Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh today: B terrestris (many) and one each of B pratorum and B hortorum. I had thought that B hortorum normally emerged later than other species.

I saw my first bees last week, on Thursday.  Too excited!!  Seen many queens since then, buff tail and white tail.  Watched one for a while looking for a nest, she seemed very fussy smile
