I just took a quick video of my bees flying today on 15th Nov ,12. Yesterday they were bringing in lots of pollen also looked like some new bees were flying around for the first time. Will these girls be using up their winter stores or are they still bringing in nectar they can use later on?

My bees came pouring out for playflights mid afternoon, although overcast and only11c...but I suppose we're a long way from Tipperary
