As you know, I’ve recently become a beekeeper! A nucleus of bees is now happy and settled into the first of my two beehives, and now a swarm has moved into the second one!
I was absolutely delighted to hear that someone had spotted a swarm in need of a home! We got a phone call from a man who thought there were a lot of bees flying around his hedge. Immediately Brian, a longtime beekeeper and my mentor, set off in his car armed with a skep, or wicker container.
