Great to know you still have plenty of bees and have found a nest! I have quite a few bird boxes and was delighted to find one of them had been chosen as a bumble bee nest a year or two ago.
Even better to know that you don't use any chemicals in the garden like the majority of other folk here.
Since I stopped using insecticides several years ago the amount of wildlife has increased tremendously and I now often see several kinds of birds devouring aphids from my clematis, roses and other plants which helps keep them in check. Nature has achieved balance all by itself!
