Harringay, Haringey - So Good they Spelt it Twice!

In our mailbox today:

I was in the garden today when I noticed a fairly loud buzzing noise.

When I looked up I saw hundreds of what looked like bees over the Duckett Road garden area, half way up past the canal.

The swarm very quickly seemed to disolve or move on. I'm a little wary of going into the garden now.

Has anyone else seen anything like this recently?

It's very normal for bees to do this. No need to worry, they aren't interested in you. They're looking for a new home with their queen bee.
.... Here are some pictures..

Bees are fascinating creatures - am jealous of the people who got to see them en route to a new home!

That saying, I'm glad it wasn't my bike... *lol*

Thank you as. I've reposted one of your images here.

We saw a swarm of bees gathering on a parked bike outside the Salisbury on GL this afternoon... people were stopping to take photos, though keeping their distance! Was going past in a car so didn't see what happened to them. 

Yes I saw the bike too! Not seen anything like that before, amazing! Hopefully one of the photographers will upload.
I had a swarm settle in my compost bin here in Harringay. Here's the tale told on my blog pages

Nice :)
Glad to hear that others saw them too today as by the time I got my camera out, they had already disappeared.
Thanks.

There were definitely way too many to fit into a bird box.

I had bees that made their home next to my CCTV camera that was situated in an air vent. It was like a horror movie to see these giant insects flying in via the CCTV monitor!

I contacted some official bee person who was official studying bees and mine became part of that study. Then the mice got to them.
