A taste of spring again today - the warm sunshine encouraged the Early Crocus to open, and the pollen and nectar they provide was being enjoyed by several queen Buff-tailed Bumblebees and a few Honey Bees. I watched this particular queen for quite some time as she clambered around over the flowers - perhaps freshly emerged from hibernation and not quite having worked up the energy to fly.
