May Bee Walk

A fantastic warm Spring day today perfect for our May Bee Walk.  Starting in the middle of the day the conditions were perfect for bees coming out of hibernation:  the weather was warm, sunny, and windless, and at long last there's a good range of  plants and flowers emerging so I was very hopeful that today there would be more bees - and there were, compared to March (no bees) and the single figures of April - but still only 13.    One of that 13 though was the biggest, most beautiful Red-tailed Queen which cheered me up no end. 
The photos tell more of the story:

I think given another few days of warm weather and the bees will be doing just fine - lets hope so.
