Beekeeper away--Woopeckers play!

I have been away on holiday in the Canaries for the 4 weeks of Febuary. Had a look round my Bees today, only to find 5 hives have been under attack from woodpeckers. One hive has a nice new entrance that the bees were using today in the sunshine.

This is the first time I've ever had a problem with woodpeckers, I'm putting it down to the hard weather conditions.

As soon as the weather picks up properly I will change these hive bodies over and do some repairs, luckily I have plenty of spares.

The main thing is the Bees are all ok, and were bringing loads of pollen in, making the best of this sunny day.

That four weeks in the Canaries, sounds really good to me.
