Observations are easily filmed using the award winning solitary bee nest box. Great for schools and others interested in nature and wildlife!

George this is amazing, your time and patience is unbelievable. What a wonderful pastime studying bees are. I thank you for my limited knowledge and pass on to whoever is interested in them, and try to inform that not all bees sting. I never knew solitary bees existed until Nurturing Nature, and I look after my masons and leaf cutter bees as though they belong to me entirely!! Thank you George.

King regards Marian

My pleasure Marian.It is nice to receive comments like this, make it all worth while! I do put a heck of a lot of time into planning, filming, waiting for things to develop, editing etc. My aim is to educate people hence I do this and designed the nest boxes to allow others, such as yourself to share the enjoyment of watching these busy bees, close up!

Cheers for now, George
