Bees are so vital to keep flowers pollinated. They are in decline in many places due to habitat destruction and the effects of pesticides. The UK Government is thinking of overturning the current ban on neonicotinoids, one of the pesticide types known to damage bees.

And a bonus photo of a male reed bunting. Two of these handsome birds were singing at each other over the grassland.
