Banded mining-bee seen last year near Dorpzicht
Posted on February 16, 2012
I caught a banded mining-bee in April on a flower rich grassland along the Roggesloot at Dorpzicht. This is the third sighting of this species on the island. Earlier (in 2004) I saw a female at Ottersaat and Menno Reemer saw one in Spang. Presumably, this species is present on Texel in small numbers, scattered over the island.
