|Nomada descending into communal Andrena nest (look really, really hard!)|
A further group were spotted hawking around a memorial stone at the other end of the cemetery - small, brown and yellow, and far too fast on the wing to capture on film!
And following on from yesterday's woodland coupling, we were lucky enough to spot yet another B. hypnorum queen with piggybacking regent flying outside the nest up in the corner of the Bio Sciences building on campus. They made a few victory fly-pasts, then disappeared into a nearby alder tree. It must just be that time of year, I guess!
