Bee on catkins

Was very glad to see the bees out in force this morning working the catkins. I am currently planting a Willow 'Fedge' next to some of my hives as its a great early source of pollen. I have chosen some varieties especially for the prolific catkins. Cant wait to see the results!

A happy sight

This was a happy sight today. One of my honeybees taking advantage of the beautiful warm sunshine to gather pollen. Very important for all the new brood that needs feeding.
