Wild honeybees nesting in a tree
Today was my first time to see bees nesting in a tree; about 9 feet up an old ash in a crack (see YouTube below). This is the sort of no nonsense, no hive, no honey sort of bee-keeping that appeals to me.
On my journey round a beautiful garden in north Wales the birds were singing and the moths and butterflies flitting everywhere. That is apart from one couple which were locked in a prolonged act of passion. I’ve looked on the identification sites but still none the wiser. Can anyone help?
