Hello,

Could anyone suggest a good bee spotting/identification guide? We have a wall chart with c. 50 types of bee that came with my boyfriend's bee house, but we have already seen bees that are not on there! We'd like a book or  a better chart if possible.

Failing that, an app (android) or website would be great, if anyone knows of a good one.

Thanks!

I've used this one and it did identify my bumble bee, you can upload any picture for ID or there's a booklet you can buy for £2.50

Your welcome, I'm completely rubbish at naming bees but I managed to get a pic of one
