Description:

This pair were not very accessible rolling round in undergrowth in woodland; blurry images difficult to see details. Probably B. Lapidarius but possibly B. Ruderarius?

Bombus lapidarius

I'd say definitely not B ruderarius. If it was that species, the orange-red hairs on the hind tibia would be evident in these photos.
