Bee Update

Our bees are making good preparations for winter.

They have been foraging from around the local area and we are also supporting them by giving sugar syrup every five days, to ensure they are have enough to store reserves for the winter months.

There is only one frame yet to be drawn and filled, all others have plenty of wax capped stores and pollen in them along with some of the last bees to be reared for the season.

As usual with our exchanges, friendships are being formed, barriers broken down and cultural lessons learned.
