Today has been a busy one for the Bumblebees. Many were in flight around the Ring as we wandered on the lower slopes. Most seemed to be Bombus terrestris, the Buff-tailed Bumblebee.
There were two Bombus lapidarius, the easy to identify Red Tailed Bumblebee.
Often they were found on the ground amongst the grass, it was a rather cool wind and the bees were conserving their energy reserves
