Three definite bands of yellow. The first photo seems to show a dark band between the abdomen and thorax, but you can also see yellow hairs behind them. The yellow pollen nicely matches the hair colour just to confuse things too.
Only thing is that the tongue doesn't seem to be particularly long (unless you have to penetrate deep into these pink ragwort flowers).
A rather bald looking bumblebee. The wings look to be in good order, so probably not an extremely old bee. The last photo is a closeup of the back of the thorax/front of the abdomen. There is something there that could be mites (or could be aberrations caused by being out of focus :-). The tongue seems to be quite short, so probably just B. terrestris (unless you have to penetrate deep into these pink ragwort flowers).

A bumblebee showing off two sets of wings as it approaches a ragwort flower.
Do bees have to follow any regulations about maximum pollen loading? I think this one should be pulled over and given a warning ;-)
Well following my own guide ;-P, this looks like B. subterraneus to me, even complete with a little 'notch' in the yellow band at the front of the thorax.
A little out of range though!
A bumblebee is any member of the bee genus Bombus, in the family Apidae. There are over 250 known species, existing primarily in the Northern Hemisphere although they also occur in South America. They have been introduced to New Zealand and the Australian state of Tasmania.
