The Apprentice And The Bee
Our First Red Mason Bee Begins to Nest!

This captivating film clip provides a rare glimpse into the natural world of a female Red Mason bee (Osmia bicornis) who has recently started nesting in one of our hotels. 

Her nest comprises of a linear row of individual chambers, meticulously constructed and divided with wet mud. 

She fills each chamber with pollen and nectar, laying a single egg, before starting the next chamber. 

The astonishing effort and skill displayed demonstrates a parallel to the craft skills that our apprentices strive to achieve in their own specific area of development. 

Stay tuned as more guests check into our hotel!
