Bees in trees

Whilst walking in Consall Hall Gardens, I noticed a movement near a hole in a tree, about 10 metres up and a good 80 metres away.  It was impossible to see what was there at that distance, but I had a 300mm telephoto lens on my camera and just raised it to take some snap shots, with the intention of enhancing the images on my computer later, to see what could be there.

The cropped and enhanced image shows bees flying in and out of what is probably an old woodpeckers nest.  I am quite please with this image.
 Other shots were OK but less interesting.
Clearly this is a bee hive which is quite active, even at this time of year.
