Bumblebees, Badgers and Briallu
Pushing onion sets into my dry soil it was a welcome sight to see the return of insect life after our mini ice age of a long winter. Not sure what it was, looked like some small kind of a bee. Jazzy bumblebees were focussed on the purple heather and not the close-up lens.
I walked through the woods to retrieve footage from my motion detect camera and clumps of Briallu (primroses) were in bloom at last. Also a few violets.
As for the film footage; still no baby badgers but the parent, after a ceremonial scratch, was gathering new bedding for the nursery. Interesting technique, bit like a baling machine in reverse.
