April Bees feed on Rape

Three colonies survived the wet and cold spring, two quite strongly the third severely depleted in numbers. 
All have discovered the rape crop in fields within a mile or so from the apiary and have plenty of honey stores remaining.

Golden yellow pollen seen adhering to bees in addition to that on the leg sacks.

Mouse guard left in place on the weaker colony

Good numbers working well
