The start of the path is a nicely landscaped park
There was competition over this wild rose, with this buff tailed / white tailed bumble bee
We had hoped to be able to see lots of butterflies for the Big Butterfly Count, but it was probably too windy for them and we only saw one ringlet butterfly
We also saw this very handsome hoverfly, which I think is a Volucella pellucens, but hoverflies are tricky to identify and I may well be wrong (this isn't the best lit photo after all), if you have a better id let me know in the comments.... Whatever it is, it's a very impressive hoverfly. Edited to add, my id has now been confimed thanks to the Facebook UK Hoverfly Group (which is well worth joining if you are interested in UK hoverflies!). You may also be interested in this guide to UK hoverflies.
It is nice to see the bees happy! I love the wild roses and the butterfly. Have a happy weekend!
I just love verges. Have The Bees in my hot little hands. Will start it as soon as I finish my current book about a family who accidentally adopts an abused and abandoned young donkey. Flash. Name of the book there.

Well, "1" is data just like "14" would be, so it all adds up!
What a variety of bees!
It must have been a lovely walk and enjoyed seeing your great photos. Isn't it wonderful seeing bees buzzing about at work.
Hi Eileen, yes the bees seemed very happy, lovely to see
Maureen - hope you enjoy The Bees! Your current book sounds interesting too
Rabbits'Guy - it does indeed, but it's nice to see lots of butterflies...
Carolyn - thanks
A lovely walk, you took some super photos and I enjoyed every one. The bees were interesting. I have enjoyed seeing the different colored ones on my recent travels.
What lovely scenery! It's quite relaxing to see. The little visitors are just gorgeous.
Nice photos, looks a nice place for walking.
