Yesterday we had the first really warm day of spring and the bees have been out hunting for pollen in the area around the school.

At this time of year, there are very few flowers in bloom so there is not much for the bees to choose from except crocuses and daffodils.


At the front of the school there are some crocuses, which our bees haven’t been able to find yet, however, a big fat bumble bee was having a great time collecting pollen!


Winter feeding

Great news! Both bee hives are still alive and well.


Some of the Primary 7s were out today checking how much food the bees had and if they needed more.


We feed them icing sugar in the winter so that they can keep moving and keep their hives warm.
