Three or four species of bumble bee in the backyard today (and a bee fly out the front). The Wood Warbler remains on territory too. Not one Bar-tailed Godwit flew over,... not one.

what plant is that?

Yellow Archangel Lamiastrum galeobdolon (I think it used to be Galeobdolon luteum). It's a good pollen source for early(ish) bees and a food source for the day-flying Speckled Yellow Pseudopanthera macularia still awaiting for that one to appear in the garden though.
