4 bumblebees
Description:

What struck me was the four bumblebees all feeding on a single thistle head. There were 10 on the plant in total. Why so many on just the one head?

Cuckoo Bee

These look the same as the bees on this Observation http://ispot.org.uk/node/2508 which I think are Gypsy Cuckoo Bee.
