Recipe for honey

Warm, sunny, windless, perfect for the newly emerged bees. Here's one of the solitary bees, taken in Souter Park, Whitley Bay:

Tawny Mining Bee - female
Tawny Mining Bee - male

Back at the ranch the frog spawn is now turning to tadploes, so the newts are starting to return.

Palmate Newt - this one is an immature (larva) from last year

And in a sunny corner I found a few Spotted Wolf Spiders sunning themselves. I've not seen these in my garden before.
