Bumblebees on Badger menu

GrahamB/2005_Badger_Bee.jpg

Over the weekend I discovered that a Badger has dug out a Bumble Bee nest on Barton Fields very near to the Sustrans path. Confused bees were still around the day after and seemingly still using a small corner of the hole, which itself was big enough to hold a football. First time I have seen this happening to a Bumble Bee nest on the site - before it has been wasp nests
