Having a preen
Now this Red Kite comes and sits in the fir tree near my house (two doors down) they are one of the most successful reintroductions of a bird the country has know and they were reintroduced not far from where I live. It has to be my favorite bird and I never cease to stop for a moment to watch them.

Bees on the Beans
One of the things we have on our patio is a few tubs in wich we grow runner beans and they attract bees who collect the pollen and in doing so fertilize the plant.

Up in Flames
This happened a few years ago along the road from my house, the car had smoke coming out from under the bonnet (hood) stopped and the lady got out. within moments it looked like this.
The fire brigade came along and put the fire out though I don't think the car was good for much after.
Have a good day

On the top of Glastonbury Tor you will find this tower which was part of a church built in the 15th century. It fell into disrepair after the dissolution of the monastery when the last abbot was hung on the Tor.

The other day one of the contractors asked it I had seen the bees outside on the container. So I thought some photos were in order.
Turned out they were in the forklift slot on the storage container I used.
Seem to be a reasonable size swarm.
I used the zoom to get close
