Friday 25th March was one of the few warm sunny days so far this Spring. As such I spent a bit of time in the garden and couldn't help noticing the large number of bees visiting the flowers on the winter-flowering heaths. Most were Honey Bees but there were also two Buff-tailed Bumblebees and a Tree Bumblebee (which didn't stay long enough for a photo). Two Small Tortoiseshell butterflies settled on the gravel briefly before flying off to pastures new. A reminder that the UKBMS butterfly transects start again for this year on 1st April.
