Swarming bees

There was I sitting in the garden yesterday out of the heat, quietly reading my book when I noticed a few bees, far more than usual, then the air was thick with them and they eventually settled on a tree,  They swarmed again and finally settled on the rowan tree.   Luckily a beekeeper, Bill,  lives nearby so he was able to come over and collect them.  He said it was a big swarm of about 40000 bees.

The first time I've experienced this.
