Good timing?


There are a lot of young bees taking play flights out of hive 3 this afternoon.  It really is very busy.  These are the first of the new brood from this swarm from the New Forest.  The queen has been laying very well and we are now set to see a population explosion.  With the weather hopefully about to turn for the better, the bramble just coming out and the main summer flow about to start what better position could that colony be in?
