Bee First Aid
Victoria’s been very concerned about the number of expired and expiring bumblebees conking out around Greenwich. She says “They’re especially bad around Greenwich South street near St Marks church. Every morning on the way to the DLR there are more and more, I counted at least 30 this morning.”
Now, I know nothing about bees except that some people keep them on their roofs these days. But while I was busy googling Bees in Greenwich (did you know there’s an Beekeeping supplies shopon Blackheath Hill? No – nor did I…) Victoria managed to find this useful First Aid Advice for grounded bees. It looks a bit fiddly to me, all sugar solutions and pipettes, but at least there’s no mouth-to-mouth involved.
I know – the pictures seem pretty random, but I didn’t have any lovely pictures of Greenwich bees, dead or alive, and I did have lovely pictures of Greenwich Park flowers that Stevie took the other day. And bees like flowers don’t they, so it’s sort of connected…
