This week I go in search of the common White Tailed Bumblebee! Unlike other species in this series which are often rare and elusive, the White Tailed Bumblebee is an example of "everyone's" wildlife and a fun species to look out for whether you live in the countryside or an urban town! But watch out, these Bumblebees can be tricky to identify! A BIG Thank you to Nick Acheson for helping me with my search, all his links are posted below! Subscribe for more:

Another big Thank you to my @gregfoot for edit producing this video and making it all the better!:

The Norfolk Wildlife Trust is the largest wildlife trust in the UK and 2016 marks their 90th birthday! To celebrate, Norfolk Wildlife Trust and Maddie are joining forces to create 9 videos for their #9for90 project. Each video will focus on one of the nine charismatic species chosen to represent Norfolk Wildlife Trust's Nine Living Landscapes. The White Tailed Bumblebee has been chosen to represent urban landscapes and our gardens!

But what is a Living Landscape?

Sadly the UK's wildlife is in decline but the wildlife trusts have an ambitious plan to help nature recover. Living Landscapes aim to return biodiversity to our countryside by restoring, reconnecting and recreating wild areas. New nature-rich habitats will be created, joining together surviving refuges to allow wildlife species to move more freely and expand their range and populations.

NWT has identified a number of areas where they will be focusing their efforts. These Living Landscape project areas have been selected to cover some of the key wildlife areas in Norfolk and other areas where there are opportunities to create new habitats!

Finally, many thanks to the Heritage Lottery Fund for helping make this video series possible:
