The Hill ready for Winter

I visited the Hill today and the bees were really busy.  It was mid afternoon with a little Autumn sunshine trying to get through the clouds but and the bees were very active and successfully keeping out the couple of wasps I saw making a sortie.  It seemed a good weight when I hefted the hive and I removed the feeder and added a mouse guard.  I'd like David to take a look before we leave them to their own devices to make sure we don't need to add stores but I reckon they should be OK.
