Two swarms of our bees in the Orchard:
Wednesday 19th & Saturday 29th June 2013
Thanks to Tomasz Hobot for all the photos
L: The bees swarmed on apple tree Tom Putt - see the Tree Plan for tree location

BCOG's beekeeper Jim Binning collected the bees. They have been introduced into the new hive in the same enclosure in the Orchard.
