The bramble flowers in the back alley way are attractiung a lot of bees.

These include buff-tailed bumble bee and honey bees.

I also saw my first tree bee this year and as I watched I noticed as many as three individual tree bees.
This bee is a recent colonist for the UK and their populations are being monitored, however this bee is not thought to impact on our native bee species. Its called a tree because it often nests in the cavities in trees or in an unused bird box.
