Bee swarm

Short blog today….we had a bee swarm at Powerstown allotments last month – the queen (who was clipped and therefore could not fly away) decided to move out of the hive and the bees swarmed along the ground.

Luckily they were spotted and encouraged back in by our intrepid bee-keepers as it fell to zero degrees that night.

Here’s a video of this interesting event!
