NORWICH: Some more interesting bees

Late July 2019

Another evening visit to the Bartlett's Bee Paradise garden, where Vanna had found Nomada flavopicta. Whilst we were there we saw plenty of other things, including a Clover Melitta bee feeding on White Clover and a male Pantaloon Bee that roosts in the garden. Cheilosia caerulescens, a hoverfly associated with House Leeks was a new species for me, as was the tiny Bellflower Scissor Bee (Chelostoma capanularum).
