So yesterday evening I did an hour in the garden doing nothing but wandering around looking for bees… and other insects/wildlife, I’m not going to lie here! B-)
In the hour I spent in the garden, 4:30 to 5:30 pm, other than the Red mason bees that I have nesting, I only saw one bee. That seems…. Odd.
This time last year I’m sure there were more than this. I do remember my Ceanothus having LOADS of bees on it. Only one yesterday and I have a better show from it this year than I did last year.
Looking back on my twitter feed from this time last year shows these two for a start.
Now it’s possible that I just picked a poor day. Late in the afternoon and not sunny like in those pics. I will have another go soon and hopefully the results will be better.
I’m hoping it’s a glitch and not a trend. >.>
