I have noticed today we have bees in our blue tit box, and wanted to know what type they are. I thought possibly tree bees but they don't seem to have a white enough tail.
Definitely not B hypnorum the Tree BB which has a chestnut /tawny thorax and brilliant white tail. Look like B pratorum which should be working hard on your soft fruit flowers, but unusual if box is up a tree as usually nest at ground level.
Thanks. It is about 10ft up an ornamental cherry tree so not at all ground level!
