8-05-07 Birds & Bees

Cuckoo Bee

First part of the day was learning about Bumblebees but the weather was not looking good ,we did see six species including this Cuckoo Bee as the name implies it does lay eggs in other nests and take over, called into a couple of places on the way home did have my first Redstart of the year rather distant but giving good views, I also surprised two Deer I was standing still at the time but even the click of the camera alerted them and they where off A Buzzard mewing over the nearby fields is a sound I like to hear, heavy showers at times but a good day out.

Heard me
Saw me
Redstart kept his distance
