Activity at the Entrance of the new Top Bar Hive. Recorded on 21 August 2015... Time 15:00.

Lots of bees are fanning at the hive entrance. They are trying to evaporate the water content in nectar that has been collected and turn it into honey

Its mid Winter now and we had a nice day at about 18 C, The majority of the bees were going out foraging for resources.

There are not a lot of flowers at this time of the year as we are in the middle of the winter months. It has been a relatively mild winder with only a few nights going down to about 5 C then back up to about 12C to 17C during the day.

Somehow the bees find some great pollen sources and you can see some bees have filled their back legs with some bright large yellow pollen.
