With the weather about to turn a bit cooler I thought I'd have a check of the hives yesterday. All five have plenty of bees, a decent amount of stores and quite a lot of brood. Looks like there's been a bit of a honey flow with this warm weather we've had and there's also quite a bit of pollen going in still. Here's hoping for a short, mild winter.

Don't forget your mouse guards, it's about now they're looking for somewhere warm with loads of food to spend the winter. Make sure you don't do what a friend managed last year and trap one inside.
