Strange bee , identification needed please

Hello folks i was hoping you could help, I have seeen in my garden now twice a Bumble bee ? which is

Size 12-15mm

abdomen - mainly black with thin white stripes (But not Hairy)

thorax - Mainly Black but with a white rim around the outside , infact even a skull like shape on it

head - black


I tried to take a photo of it but it flew before I could.


Im a keen bee keeper and love watching all the many bee types i have in the garden but ive not been able to find anywhere on the internet or in books to identify this bee ?
