Welcome All; we're having a buzz

March 16, 2019

Once again, our Home Reserve has played host to a hive of some 25,000 honey bees supplied by Andrew from Huddersfield. We are very pleased to welcome him back again this year, as the help goes both ways in providing the nourishment for the bees, and also massively helps with pollination on and around the Reserve.

The bees will be with us for at least a week whilst they complete their much appreciated work, before being taken off elsewhere to further their aims in another area. Although the hive currently houses that amazing figure of 25,000 bees, Andrew informs me that by mid-summer the hive will hold around 60,000 bees, as they hatch at the rate of one every seven minutes! (I'm just grateful we don't have a colony of bee-eaters on this reserve!)
