I know we're still a bit short of bees, so when I found this one half-dead on our conservatory floor, I took it out into the sun and gave it some sugar:
According to this site, it's a Large Earth Humble Bee, or Bombus Terrestris.
After feeding, it preened itself and flew off - job done!
We went down to Rye Harbour Nature Reserve over the weekend to take a few photos from the bird hides there.
We saw a Great White Egret:
A female Wheatear - thanks for the comment that ID'd this for me, the RSPB bird ID website was showing the male one first, which looks quite different.
And finally, some cute ducklings (I think - no sign of the parent), who started off on their little island:
Gradually made their way down to the water:
Swam round the island:
And then came out again on the other side:
They did this several times, but didn't dare move to another island!
