Brand New Bees!

Saturday, June 18th 2016

A lovely coincidence happened today: A group from York and District Beekeepers Association (YDBA) came for a talk about Foxglove and a walk on the same day that we saw new bees emerging from their cells in our observation hive! We expect this to continue for a few more days… There’s a video to come, or if you can't wait then come and see for yourself!

The YDBA group listened attentively to a talk about and enjoyed a walk around the reserve. Our lake hide was a particular favourite, with hopes of seeing the kingfisher which was sighted this morning!

Many thanks to Brian and Jenny for their help.
