Weather has been much improved – temperatures in the mid-20C. One or 2 heavy showers but bees seem to be doing OK.
Still plenty of forage- Ragwort, Goldenrod, bramble, hebe and also Rosebay Willowherb just starting.
Bees doing well, bringing in plenty of stores.
Cast (Emerald) has expanded really well and is now on 6 frames BIAS.
Need to make up 3 frames to fill out cast and replace manky frame in Aqua
