This is SO exciting! Spotted this chap in the Habitat Aid garden on my lunch break. It looks like a honeybee BUT it’s actually Colletes hederae, the Ivy bee. Only recorded at all in the UK in 2001. What a beauty! Plant and they will come! ❤️❤️❤️😀
Now’s the time to plant bulbs. #wildlifegardening #bees
