Home/work species lists

I did some fairly serious bumblebee recording with a camera in 2009 (the camera broke last year).  Today I was out for lunch munching a bacon roll and spotted the arch-enemy of the bumblebee, the bee-fly.  These are brood parasites of bees, and so as we see the Queen bumblebees humming about their nest-building, the bee-flies are out to get them…

No idea what sort of bee-fly, to be honest, although I know there’s a new one in town, but I haven’t seen  them near my  work before.  I really need a photo, I know.

However, anticipating a possible return to photography this year, I thought I’d jot down some notes about what I’ve spotted over the while. It will either get tidier and more detailed or abandoned…
