I moved house a couple of days ago so i've not been thinking of bees (just how to try and fib to my friends that i haven't much heavy stuff to shift). I found another dead bee the other day in the park - a buff-tailed bumblebee. I've been offered the use of microscopes at the local university so i can study all the dead ones i've collected more closely (the image above is of a bee I collected last year and kept).
Also, quite a few people are sending things, giving me books and emailing links to things related to bees - my friend Rich sent this link to an article from Lancaster University:
Lancaster University News
and another friend William sent me this one too about a project 'Figures and Hives'
