Unfortunately our single colony of bees didn’t survive the 2013/2014 winter. This spring we bought an over wintered nuc from Paynes Bee Farm to replace them. They have done really well so far this year, expanding rapidly and are now packing honey into the supers.
Here is a short film of them arriving home after a slightly nerve wracking car journey around London. The mesh lid is a special travelling lid to the nuc box to reduce the chance of the bees overheating.
