    I've not seen an increase in my part of Derbyshire (at least not yet anyway). Apparently humans can eat myxy rabbits but I certainly don't fancy it!

    Thanks for the replies, the poll has helped and I shall be running with the masses and ordering a copy of Ted Hoopers book. I'm in Denby Village so the Derby BKA will be my closest association. Skyhook, you say that TBH's are a bit non-standard and that a mentor may be unfamiliar or disapprove...

    Hi all, I'm Leigh from sunny Derbyshire and i'm looking to start keeping bees later this year. I was interested in recommendations for books to read and what the best type of hide to start with is (I was looking at a national hide as these appear the cheapest)? Many thanks Leigh
