Very Springlike today - +16C with wall to wall sunshine.

The bees were making the most of it and bringing masses of pollen in, just after I took this picture I removed the mouseguards to make life easier for them

Same here, 16c. The girls started at about 10am, just after I removed the mouse guard and where flying well with loads of pollen going in when I last looked at about 3pm.

Mine came off 10 days ago when the night temperatures got up to near 10C and the bees were very active by day.
As long as the cluster has broken up you should be OK to remove them.
