garden wildife update

Lots of activity in our garden now as flowers have responded to spring warmth. Winter visiting birds have been replaced by the more urgent need for nesting, great tis, blue tits, robin and house sparrows.

Bee activity has increased. The hairy footed bees, male and female are busy visiting the comfrey and flowering current. Several queen buff tailed and red tailed bumble bees in the garden - one buff tailed queen appears to be nesting in a hole by the shed.

Red mason bees visible today and the larger comma and tortoiseshell butterflies have been joined by speckled wood and a blue butterfly - that did not settle.
