I seem to be spending a lot of time recently rescuing little critters.
This little bee was sat on the floor of the polytunnel with no energy so I nipped back to the house and made up a sugar solution, just lots of sugar and a little bit of water. I put some on the edge of one of my little tools and left him to it. Immediately he began to feed and soon perked up.
Within five minutes he was gone,
I left the rest of the solution in the polytunnel for next time.
I've been doing the same in the house with bees that get trapped overnight and are losing energy. Every time I go into the paddock with the dogs I check the sheep's' water buckets for struggling flies or other insects, and rescue them with a leaf if I am in time.
Buckets that I leave about the place with water that I might need I make sure to leave a stick or piece of wood in as a ramp to help anything that falls in climb out again, and I make sure there is some but not lots of water in the bird baths for the little creatures that use them
I'm sure Lovely Hubby thinks I've gone a bit soft but he grins and lets me get on with it.
And yes, I have also rescued some more baby rabbits that Ginger brought home and set them free back in the woods, I do ask them as I carry them to safety NOT to eat my veggies .... but I don't think they speak English!!
