Poor Winston! hope he has managed to find another place to call home. I’ve had several more encounters with bees over the last couple of weeks – not hunny bees this time, but bumbles. I hadn’t appreciated that on seeing them on the ground from time to time and appearing lifeless, that they are often just exhausted and you can revive them! having been told this, I’ve had the opportunity to revive a few over the last week or so. With a simple mix of sugar and water offered to them on a shallow spoon, they will drink it (which in itself is quite amazing to watch). After a few minutes (or seconds even for the smaller bumble varieties) they buzz off, back to what they were doing!
