Bees in birdbox

Settled in their new patch!

Bees seen in a bird box on my patio. They flew quite angrily around me and as it was near our back door which we like to leave open in the summer and where our dog likes to sunbathe we decided to move them. Blocked the hole up in the evening, carried the bird box to a more out- of- the- way bit of garden and took the tape off. They seem happily settled and we don't bother them and they don't bother us now!
