The garden group continues to monitor and record the bee species which we see in the garden. Three new species have recently been recorded. Bees are wonderful insects. Through the lens the fine detail of the hairs and the legs and the jaws reveal something which we do not usually see as they scurry by or buzz from one flower to another.
