Bumblebee
Description:

I came across this undated picture in a series of recent photographs from a local nature reserve in South Glos. It was labelled as a carder bee, but the only carder it might be is a shrill carder and I don't believe that they're still found in S. Glos. More likely a cuckoo of some sort?
