Cuckoo Bee

My first new species of this year: a cuckoo bee, probably Nomada fabriciana (Hymenoptera: Apidae).  A red abdomen with black stripes and a yellow spot on either side (see also this photo that is near the foot of this page at the Dungeness Bird Observatory site).

Photos taken in the Wilderness, Whiteknights Park, Reading University grounds, Reading, UK, on 2011-03-23.
