No birds but loads of bees

Very quiet on the bird front at the moment so I've turned my attention to other things for a while, like this Bombus hypnorum at the sewage works near Coombe St Nicolas. Since they invaded from the continent in 2001, when a single specimen was seen in Hampshire, they have spread right across the country. I only found my first one in this area in 2011 but have seen may here since.
