MAY 2018


†††††††† Here we go, into May and as we are about to enter so winter returns. With the beast from the east revisited.

†††††††† When the weather makes itís mind up and decides that there will be a summer this year I am expecting to be inundated with calls about swarms and will be looking to distribute them to those who have expressed a wish to receive one.† If you want to be added to the list please let me know.

†††††††† During the sunny weeks between the winters we have had an extraordinarily large number of large bumble bees in attendance at the Apiary and everywhere else from what I hear.† This months meeting on the 26th has Lauren Kennedy giving us a talk about the Bumble Bee Conservationís project Making a Buzz for the Coast and she will be able to explain why we have had the large number of Bumbles this year.

†††††††† We have many visits being booked for June by local scouting groups as well as Brownies and the W.I. If you have a group that would like to visit get in touch soon while there is still dates available.

†††††††† We will be inspecting hives throughout this month on the Saturdayís from midday, all welcome to come along and join in.
