Summer swarm

Today’s hive visit saw two extremely active hives – the bees were swooping and darting all over the rooftop, making us very glad that the hives were in the capable hands of Maddie, Luke’s assistant!

Maybe the bees were excited to show off the wild comb that they had made:

Wild comb basically means the comb that the bees make themselves, rather than the comb layered up over the frames we provide.  It was pretty cool to see and we’ll be interested to see what it looks like by next week.

And finally, here’s a short video of today’s visit (turns out the traffic/helicopters etc. were for a taxi strike – it’s all go in central London today!).
