In a recent Berwickshire News there was an article on the decline of the bumble bee. The Bumblebee Conservation Trust based at Stirling University is asking for digital photos of bumblebees with the postcode of where the photograph was taken. If you email it to the address below they will email back with an identification of the type of bee. I emailed two photos of bumblebees taken in our garden and the was indeed emailed back with their identification.
