Had an interesting and unusual situation in the garden yesterday. A swarm of bees arrived and completely took over our barbet log!!
I was worried about our animals and asked for advice on a FB page. People commented that they were most likely following the queen who was looking for a new nesting place and they would not be aggressive in this situation. They did seem quite calm and stayed for about an hour and then moved next door, under the eaves of our neighbour's house. I had to go out then but our neighbour phoned about an hour later to say they had got a bee specialist in who removed them all.
I got a pic of them on the barbet log, but it's not great as I wasn't going to get too close.
