In our garden, today.

My husband noticed something unusual, in a tree. Not so obvious, here but clearer in this photo.


and threats didn't move them-well, not the queen.

The beekeeper said that she hadn't seen a swarm so high-approximately 10metres from the ground.
The swarm has settled now, still in the tree, with a hive containing honey temptingly below, in the hope that they may want convenient food and shelter.

I will try to update the saga when they move.



  1. How exciting. Will you have to capture the queen bee?

  2. The swarm has now moved on, sadly, not into the waiting hive. It managed to move undetected so we don't even know the direction in which it moved but we are fairly sure that it isn't in our garden.
