First Inspection

A stunning Spring day here at 16 degrees C so went through the hives. 


I didn’t recheck the one I looked at yesterday but I am sure they are on 5 frames of brood and I have another that is on five for sure. Three on four frames, three on three frames, the Langstroth Nuc is on two, the National nuc on one and one very poor National colony is on one and I will take up a nuc box to transfer them into the next visit. 


All in all  a stunning start and even better there is nectar evident in all the units. From? I suspect willow as it was willow pollen horsing in the entrances.
