    Default Bee Lining Sucess



    I took the day off yesterday to walk my dog on the North York Moors - I noticed some honey bees and followed their line over half a mile of heather moorland. I found where they were headed. Hidden behind a wall somebody had made an apiary. I was a little disappointed as I was hoping to find a wild hive, but I'm always intrigued to see someone else's operation.



    In this case the beekeeper has towed a trailer over a considerable distance into the field on the edge of the moorland. There's a chicken wire fence - I guess to keep out the sheep. They've used those orange hive straps from France. And travel screens made from green plastic mesh sold in garden centres, were stored on top of the roofs.
