Birds and Bees

                    Curlew at Fly Flatts this a.m.
                                               Plenty Swallows over the water
                 Bees outside M&S Woolshops Halifax this p.m.


  Street wardens running round not knowing what to do , so cordoned 
 it off so the Bees could,nt get out !
                  M&S now selling home made honey.

    A quick trip out this p.m. found this distant Buzzard sitting out.


Little birding time today so checked Fly Flatts this a.m. which was not one of my better moves as very quiet, whatever has happened to this place. Even the northern ponds held very little with the usual breeders missing.
1 Common Sandpiper
1 Oystercatcher
2 Stonechat
1 Kestrel
1 LBB gull
+ usual Curlews, Lapwings and Canadas

A shopping therapy trip for Lynda in Halifax this p.m. found the bees nest just outside M&S doorway which seemed to cause some panic to the public and the street wardens wondering what to do. They finally put barriers around the tree either to keep the bees in or stop people climbing up for a closer look.

An hour out late afternoon found this distant Buzzard relaxing in a tree and after watching, camera ready, for 30 minutes for it to fly, it disappeared whilst I was distracted with a Jay overhead, not to be re located.

Those bees are amazing Brian. They were probably waiting whilst the queen went shopping in M&S.
