This is a recording of a swarm of bees that took up temporary residence in my studio kitchen! It was recorded in late spring. The whole wall was covered in bees. I used a Zoom H1 and applied just a little highpass filtering and eq to get rid of the hum of my computer which was on in the same room as the bees.

I was rather happy about the arrival of the bees. We had had honeybees build their hive in our walls for many years but then about five years ago all the honeybees disappeared. I understand this is a worldwide phenomenon and a bit of a worry considering the vital role that bees provide in fertalising flowers and fruit.

I left the window open and came back the next day to find them gone again.
