Bees Respond to the Spring Sunshine.

Spring was in the air today albeit briefly and at my local copse quite a few queen bumblebees were on the move.Among the several Buff and White-tailed bumbles seen flying around was this Early Bumblebee.It is my first sighting of the year of this attractive bumblebee.She was very interested in the moss which covered a tree stump.

The Belated Spring Weather Brings Out the Bees.

Good to see this Queen Tree Bumblebee(Bombus hypnorum) in my local copse yesterday.Let's hope that the spring weather is here to stay and our bees can get down to work.
