Just to confirm that the next meeting of ONBG will be at my place in Bampton on 19th May. I will let everyone know details closer to the time.
I thought one of my hives was about to swarm yesterday as hundreds of bees were sitting on the landing board. Ten minutes later they had all gone inside again ( I know they hadn’t flown because I was watching) . I don’t feel the weather is warm enough for me to open up and check the situation. I did look through a short while ago and they had plenty of space – could something else have been going on?
