"There are a lot of bumble bees about. Thought they were nearly extinct".

This is almost their most active period of the year - and there's many species and it's the most specialised ones that are disappearing first. Look for a bee key somewhere, and try to identify them. That'll keep you busy for the three months. I've a colony in my allotment shed - in an old mousehole. I saved one from death by exposure, which technically means I've become a beekeeper (just like Sherlock Holmes did). Only he kept honeybees rather than bumblebee. They recognise me and keep shed from marauders, perhaps.
