Some balsam as white bees coming in. Some yellow pollen.
Very few blackberry flowers out. End of season here in Manchester.

Absolutely Charliebravo, seems very little indeed around here and having taken off honey there is precious little nectar about.

Am now feeding all my bees a gallon of syrup before treating with MAQs, then will do full winter feed in due course..but in the short term nectar flow has simply stopped apparently. Bramble was immense but shortlived.

Little or no nectar coming in - There's a little cream pollen and I did see some dayglo orange pollen coming in on the corbiculae of a few workers yesterday. Any idea what it might be?
