The weather was warmer in Birmingham today, so I did a full hive-check my partners allotments. They were all very busy, with loads of pollen going in. All was fine and everyone was very well behaved. They are all well behind what I'm seeing on here though. There was brood at every stage, from egg to emerging. There was hardly any drone cells though and not a QC in sight. I reckon they are at least two weeks away from full strength, or threatening any sort of swarming.
