Yesterday we came across a bee that looked like it was exhausted so I decided to mix up some sugar water and see if it would drink some, I was surprised to see it drink as quick as it did. Here is a video of it. Sorry for the shaking and drifting focus but I had Oliver jumping on my back at the time as well. :-)
Well it's a bit disappointing, I didn't see much this year appart from the bug in the first picture of my last post the usual snails & slugs and a small black hover fly. The photos I took aren't that good but I will still put them up later.
The photos taken on the 13th are now below.
We saw a bee in the yard not looking too good, so we decided to put it on or Butterfly Feeding Station so it could get some much needed sugar and water. As soon as we put it on the fruit the Tube it uses to get the nectar from the plants came out and started taking in what it needs, I watched if for about an hour but it didn't make it,
I'm not sure why.
