Bees moving house!

A swarm of bees settled in a bush in St Nicholas churchyard. Alison came to take the bees to a new home.

She carefully took twigs from the bush with the bees clinging to them to put them into the box which would become a temporary hive. As soon as the queen bee was in the other bees followed her. Alison will return this evening, when the bees have finished work, to take them to their new hive.
