Quick check

Weather still lovely, frost first thing, 15+ by afternoon. Colonies seem alright, still introducing starter frames on edge of brood. First frame of drone brood in right colony.

Quick Check

Nice warm day, lots of activity. Both colonies have built around a third of a frame of new comb, removedentrance blocks. The photo is not as good as I would like but:_

Still cool

Quick check, bees built negligible comb on the starter strips and only taken a little syrup down. Used Cheddleton Weather station to work out average last 7 days = 5.45 degrees. I obviously started too early, must check when things start to move.
