Bee ID Please?

Hello All,

 

We were digging up some potatoes and may have unearthed this rather smart looking bee. (Though it did appear a little less than pleased at being uncovered. One moment it wasn't there, the next it was on top of a fresh mound of turned earth.)

 

I assume that it's a bumblebee, and it's the first time I've ever seen this one. It appeared to have a white front to its head, white at the back of it thorax, black abdomen with orange at the sides, and appeared to have white legs.

 

Any suggestions appreciated. (We live in Shropshire if that has any bearing...)

 

Cheers,

 

Mike
