Hello all,

Thought I’d best post a hello as I’ve only just joined the forum! Learning loads about bee keeping - so fascinating!

Where’s all the sunny weather gone!?

Welcome! :welcome:
You certainly never stop learning in beekeeping, but hopefully you improve a little each year! ;)
I'm looking forward to a bit more sunshine here on Wednesday/Thursday. In fact, thinking of location, it's worth updating your profile to include Wiltshire so that everyone knows roughly where you are, and can provide more suitable help for your location.
Good luck!

Hello and welcome. I looked through the hives yesterday. I’m on holiday to celebrate wedding anniversary. I’ve had two pints before dinner, there’s no footie on the tele and Murox has indeed got the sunny weather but tomorrow is sunshine all the way

Thank you. I have hopefully added a location to my profile.
I don't think your location is too important because it won't stop people with zero knowledge of Wiltshire giving you advise! That said if you're anywhere near the military ranges then you're definitely in superb bee country

Yea, right - and I've got a fun packed morning with a teams call on how to use our shiny new staff reporting system :oops:
Oh well. Somebody has to keep us all safe.

I'm too far from the ranges for the bees but there's loads of fields, blackberry and other open areas within a km or two :)
I can hear them when their out firing shells on the plains!

But it will enable members who live nearby to offer a helping hand if new beeks get into trouble. Which is not unheard of...
