It rained most of the day here on friday, then when it brighten up at about 6ish there were loads of my bees entering and leaving the hive. About thirty to 40 in the air trying to enter the hive and they seemed to be queuing up on the landing board to leave the hive. They did the same last sunday.
I've only had the bees two weeks and assume this is normal? due to them not be able to get out in the rain.
