Half an hour before midnight and Ken and Jill, our beekeeping friends from Devon, turn up with a swarm from their own bees they keep over in the New Forest. They had arrived at their New Forest Apiary to find a swarm from one of their hives Friday evening and gathered it up into a nuc. Two days later and they've brought it to Dorset for us. We'll take a proper look in the morning but in the meantime have placed the nuc in position on a hive floor and removed the travelling tape and the entrance cover.

So, thanks Jill and Ken and welcome to our third colony.
