Rain, floods

Roads running with water this morning, in between the newly made lakes. Maybe it will make somewhere nice for more waders to show up - Letham probably.

Here's a nice pic from yesterday, when the weather was good(ish)



A Bumble Bee on a Thistle. Or (I think) a male Red-tailed Bee, Bombus Lapidarius, on a Marsh Thistle, Cirsium palustre.

Great bee identification key (flash and html versions) from the Natural History Museum:

Here's another Bee from yesterday (both Cullaloe), I think White-tailed Bombus Lucorum
