Garden Bees

The warm weather over the weekend resulted in a couple of nice Bee sightings in our Fairlight garden. On Saturday, a splendid queen Tree Bumblebee landed on the fence but was away before we could get a camera-a garden first. More obliging was this smart Early Mining Bee on Sunday- also a first.

A March Moth in the trap was new for the year, the sun stimulated a previously undetected wintering male Blackcap to sing briefly; but we saw no butterflies.
