Both Red Tailed and Tree Bumblebee were recorded feeding and hunting out a nest site.
|Tree Bumblebee ( Bombus hypnorum )|
The wild flowers so far this year have been great. The abundant Lesser Celandine is quite a sight and seems a good enough reason that I connected with not one but at least 6 Brimstone Butterflies ( a butterfly patch lifer) on Sunday 16th.
This coupled with double figures of the Small Tortoiseshells, Comma's and Peacocks made it feel more like summer than early spring. I even recorded a Red Admiral, another year tick !
I have watched at close quarters a pair of Long Tailed Tits nest building for over a week now, I'm hoping to follow their adventures over the coming weeks.
This Spider was out basking, seems good for Agalenatea redii.
Finally a plant I was really please to find, I didn't know for sure if they were on the patch. Wood Anemone
