Hoping to maybe do some first very quick inspections today ( Monday) or tomorrow which is supposed to be a bit warmer and reverse some supers.
Its been a very different March again, most rain for over 40 years but colonies looking very strong through the polycarbonate C/B but I would rather see how the stores look around the brood now. Snowdrop, Crocus, Hazel, & Alder all a distant memory. Blackthorn just finishing after being destroyed by the rain as usual, no sloes again this year. Pear, Apple, early Cherry, Dandelion and OSR now in flower. I have a great new location with 3 huge fields of OSR and a field of Beans which I have been trying to cull the wood pigeons from all winter and want to move some colonies to when its warm enough.
Weird thing is the East winds of death started very early this year and then went away, I am not fooled by this
