Queen Bumble Bee seeking nest site

Observation - Queen Bumble Bee seeking nest site - UK and Ireland. Description: This large Queen Bumble bee was very busily seeking out a nesting site by scuttling beneath dry leaves on the woodland floor. My book says they like to nest in old mouse holes so I guess that is what it was looking for.
