Jerome’s bumblebee challenge!

I set myself a challenge of photographing as many species of bumblebee as I could find in one day.

I trekked through fields, a former golf course, nature reserve and country park in Silverdale, and along a trail into Newcastle-under-Lyme town centre.

These are my thoughts and observations recorded along the way.

Can we do more to help our bumblebees? Where are they doing best? How many species did I manage to photograph?
