Good rare bumblebee news


This 27 May 2015 video is from Tiengemeten island in the Netherlands. It shows a rare Bombus veteranus bumblebee, foraging on common comfrey flowers.

Bombus veteranus used to we widespread in the Netherlands, but by now it is limited to a few small areas. It used to be uncommon on Tiengemeten before the island became a nature reserve. Recent years, however, have seen an increase for Bombus veteranus bumblebees on Tiengemeten.
