Bumble-bees are pretty difficult to identify, and even more difficult to film, as this clip shows.
That one may well have been a garden bumble-bee, or a white-tailed, but this very small one is probably an early bumble-bee.
Later in the afternoon at Radipole Lake I had the chance to film the much larger and very common buff-tailed bumble-bee.
There were also lots of honey bees about this afternoon.
The following video was made at Shipton Gorge.
I have absolutely no idea what type of fly this is.
