That’s really interesting about the bees. Are they a type of bumble bee? Now you’ve said that, I think the ones in my porch may have been those. I have recently noticed that some are back over the porch again. I should have looked them up, but I just love having them buzzing around the garden. It’s good to hear they are good pollinators. Did you see the solitary bees on Springwatch last night? Fascinating seeing the little nest chambers.
Thanks for your kind words. You may have read about my missing female hogs this year. The most amazing thing happened last night – another female turned up! I couldn’t get a really good view of her, she kept having her back to me, but I think she is the one I haven’t seen since last August! I just hope she comes back tonight so I can get a better view.
