On Saturday unexpected visitors arrived in the ospreys’ nest. Suddenly the nest was full of bees who had decided to stop as a swarm in the home of the ospreys. The ospreys felt uncomfortable and even the food brought by Mai and Mati was almost impossible to eat.

Swarming, or the departure of a  superfluous portion of bees from the nest together with a queen, usually takes place from the beginning of June to the second half of July.

But maybe there were instead ants in the nest who likewise look for new homes?
