Plenty to hear and see along the path this week.
We investigated the bees busy around their nest – a bat box – and found out they are male Tree Bumblebees, they have no sting so we were able to observe them without fear. Some children were really fortunate, whilst watching the drone swarm they saw the female. These are important pollinators and we were lucky to get such a good look at them in action.
The blue tits have hatched and can be heard in their box.
We refilled our water stations, left mashed banana and apple pieces in various places, and were surprised how quickly it was eaten; we also spotted lots of moth and butterfly eggs and signs of new life.
