Bumble Entry #4: Lodge

The fourth Bumble entry — Lodge — has just been uploaded.

Have a listen to my search for bumblebees in central Bristol, amongst the flower beds of the Elizabethan knot garden at The Red Lodge Museum. In this entry, honeybees, red- and buff-tailed workers and a cranefly lead to a three-minute encounter with a tree bumblebee on a single rose flower.

Bumble is an ongoing, long-term project documenting my search for the sounds of all 25 UK bumblebee species, with scientific and ID assistance from the Bumblebee Conservation Trust.
