There didn’t seem to be very many bees around this year. Infact I don’t think there were many insects at all. Certainly the swifts which have been nesting over our front door for the last few years weren’t able to raise any young ones this year.
And don’t ask about the mess they leave all over the doormat!
Anyway, I did manage to spy a lone bee in early August. He was very, very busy. And didn’t have the time for a proper photoshoot.
But he did his job well and the honeysuckle thrived following his visits.
