Nothing ventured, nothing gained my dear Wonky ... and remember, plants want to live, they don't want to die if they can help it, so it's on your side.

Next door had two lots in their roof space last year - they caused no trouble at all and pollinated my beans a treat

What is this tree?

Possibly/probably Tree Bees - they frequently occuply nest boxes.  They'll be gone by the winter. They're really good pollinators

Ah I'm not sure about my weigela now - I've blown it up a bit and can see a tree trunk - I couldn't see that before, I thought it was a shrub coming over the fence from next door! 

We definitely need a better pic

It's really hard to see the shape of the flowers or the leaves - but at a guess it's one of the Weigelas

Any chance of a better photo?
