Variable Nomad

Peter Greenhalf found this interesting nomad bee at Castle Water on the 17th, which he identified as Variable Nomad Bee (Nomada zonata), an identification subsequently confirmed by bee expert Steven Falk. As with the large bear-clawed nomad bee I wrote about in an earlier post (see here), this species is also a recent addition to the British list, with the first records from Kent and Essex in 2016 (though it was recorded on Jersey in 2011). Peter's record seems to be the first for Sussex though and of course it's a new one for the reserve.
