My BBC Springwatch SOS Wildflower Trough (5) - Pollinators!

My patience has been rewarded with spring flowers and pollinators. There were a number of bees and Marmalade Hoverflies around the wildflower trough today - a joy to see!

And finally, just to add a bit more color to this post, these last three pictures were taken today and show an insect, probably a bee of some kind, making use of the insect hotels...

We have small swarms of cockchafers around the silver birch for the last few evenings and a few bats. There have been moths in and out of the window.

How great you have insects coming to your flowers, love the bug houses. I have three on a sunny wall and quite soon Mason bees moved in. This could be what you have.

Thanks for the lovely comment you left on my blog, not sure if it was a mistake or you wanted to comment on that post but it's an old post from 2016, I am interested to know as I have just changed the layout of my blog.
