Mining Bees, Pulham Market, 18 April 2015

Having seen Early Mining Bee whilst up in Yorkshire recently and with a bored moment I decided to have a look at some bees (other than bumbles) around the garden this afternoon. Along a particular sunny stretch of laurel hedge next to our orchard I was able to find, identify and photograph 2 more species - Tawny Mining Bee and Communal Mining Bee. The former in particular was quite a good looking beastie!

Very little else to get excited about locally, just a pair of singing Goldcrests and our first Chiffchaff in the garden and a Common Buzzard over the village.
