I'll fill in the missing excitement later and just tell you about now.
On August 7th we took 1 hive ( Red colony with Blue Q. still laying well!)
to a nearby heather moor. I had transferred the bees, a huge colony, to a Polyhive. WBC is hopelessly tricky to move intact. The Polyhive is National size, so takes the British Standard frames but you need more -
about 11 instead of 10.(Pics later)
We went to Acton Scott (Edwardian) Farm while on holiday in Shropshire.
Shire horses do the work - this is King Bee giving Charlie some Polo Mints.
....and Mary in the Dairy making butter.
