On the first day of Christmas my true love sent to me...

...a bilberry bumblebee!


The bilberry bumblebee (Bombus monticola) is one of the three target species in the Community Science bumblebee survey. It is a species well adapted for living in the cooler uplands of Britain, and as its name suggests can often be seen feeding on flowers of bilberry in late spring and early summer.
