In depth book on Bees

NewBoy2NewBoy2 BristolPosts: 1,804
I have a sheet that enables me to name a bee that I see on my allotment.
However I sometimes wonder "Why he did that " or "What does she do that for "

Has anyone had or still got a book that will improve my overall knowledge and help me enjoy our little friends more.

If you could recommend a book that has helped you over a period of time.

I can go on the interweb and just pick a book but your assistance would be apprecited.

    "Field guide to the bees of Great Britain and Ireland" by Steven Falk, illustrated by Richard Lewington published by Bloomsbury. ISBN 978-1-910389-03-4. 432 pages so quite comprehensive.

    As a complement to, but not a substitute for, that recommendation can I direct you to Dave Coulson’s ‘A sting in the tale’. If you like it then ‘A buzz in the meadow’ would be a good follow-up.
