In the news earlier this week there had been an appeal by the Bumblebee Conservation Trust which has teamed up with the BTO for Garden Beewatch 2007. The survey is looking to record sightings of bees in the UK and photographs can be sent in via email. It appears that the numbers of bees in the UK are on the decline.
After running around one side of where I stood the Song Thrush headed to the other and then around the back of my watering can which had overflowed earlier. I expected it to continue on and then under my domed Acer tree – to the small ground tray with sunflower hearts which it so enjoys. Instead, it stopped off at my watering can – I wondered what it was about to do.
