Bees Over-winter

Some record breaking mild weather has brought out the bees in numbers and so far none of the four colonies have lost out. The weakest of them have been supplemented Candoline and Fondant and having found some green alge or fungal growth on the combs in places I changed all the cloth coverings insulating inside the hives for a non absorbant bubble wrap reflective foil and the hives ventilate better as a result.
Pollen is being brought in signifying that the queens are starting to lay.
