Bees bivouac on North face

Not only do our Church Bees thrive on the North face of this church but also on the South face and West face of the church tower. Well out of reach from passers by and shared with the swifts that nest in the upper tower.

At 7am the bees are seen tightly clustered but as the day warms will soon be flying busily into the large colony within

Bees here outside the wall cavity are clustered about two inches deep

The tower West face has a sparate colony half way up within a cavity of the stonework

The tower South face has yet another colony set within the stonework close to the clock face

And on the East face Swifts arrived on the 5th of August to nest inside the tower
