The Buff-Tailed Bumblebee has a brain the size of a poppy seed! 

Buzz Buzzing Bees 

Here's some awesome facts all about bees... 

There are over 25,000 types of bees! 

If you find a struggling bee, you can leave it some water mixed with white sugar: 50 / 50 % and this will give it the little boost it might just need to go about its day :) 

Bees can tell eachother apart by smelling each other's footprints.... eugh! 

Black Kites 

Did you know?

Black kites can live to be 25-30 years old in the wild 

What do they eat?

Black kites will eat anything from other birds and lizards to small animals and insects. 

where can they be seen?

Black kites can be found in 4 continents: 

Europe, Africa, Australia and Africa

Check out my beady eye and hooked beak - wow! 

Black kites lay between 2 and 3 eggs. The mum will sit on the eggs to incubate them for 30-32 days. 

Black kites bring food for their offspring by hunting for food and feeding them beak to beak. The chicks don't have feathers for 18-22 days and will start flapping their wings after 27-31 days. 

British Foxes 

Foxes are fantastic eaters - they are at the top of the food chain in British woodlands becuase they will eat anything from beetles to rabbits and birds

Not only are foxes brilliant eaters but they are also great at adapting to new and challenging environments. Loss of habitat has lead to foxes coming into our towns, raiding dustbins for food and even crossing roads using zebra crossings. 

Yummy yum yum!

How can you tell a fox has been somewhere?

Their poo looks like dog poo and you can find it on paths and tree stumps and it may even contain bones from their prey...
