Cannot identify this bee. is it a Cuckoo bee?
No interactions present.
Thank you for all the ID's. I really thought it was a cuckoo bee - sylvestris? It does not have a red tail to be a red-tailed.?! Its tail was definitely yellow.
Would appreciate any more comments as to why the tail is yellow....
looks quite worn so the red tail has faded
Thank you 'alcon_blue' - guess I'll have to accept this ID now. Shame, thought I had another species to add to my list!
