Somewhere I've read that if you find a disorientated bee you need to give it a sugary drink. So I did. A tiny amount of sugar on a teaspoon, topped up with water.
The 'patient' seemed to improve (initially on its back with no way of escape) and was nowhere to be seen an hour later. Hopefully it has flown away to pollinate my broad beans!
