Rococo Uploaded

Rococo is the second entry in my recently-launched Bumble project, which documents my ongoing search for UK bumblebee sounds.

Place your ears amongst creeping comfrey flowers in Painswick Rococo Garden — a stunning, 18th Century landscaped garden in a hidden corner of the west Cotswolds — to experience the fascinating processes of nectar robbing and buzz pollination.

Featured species include a buff-tailed queen, early queen and a very industrious, female hairy-footed flower bee.

With thanks to Dom Hamilton and all staff at Painswick Rococo Garden for their help and advice.
