Another evening visit to feed the bees with Ⓑ and Ⓒ, another empty feeder. Ⓑ carefully tipped in the syrup and we spent five minutes before going looking at the pollen on the bees' corbiculae. The bees are going bananas for the syrup, and we're wondering whether to go every day for a bit to take advantage of that.

Talking of bananas, Julian forwarded a link to me which explains why bees hate bananas.
