The weather has been particularly warm this week and our bees have woken up from their winter cluster.
They have been eating all the honey they stored throughout the year to stay alive and the icing fondant that we have been giving them.
This is a very dangerous time of year however!
The bees are now moving around more and they therefore need more food. Unfortunately, there aren’t many flowers around at the moment and the ones that are don’t have a lot of nectar.
However, at the front of the school there are lots of crocuses and snowdrops. These provide a lot of pollen for the bees and if you look closely, you will see the bees foraging on them when its warm enough.
If you have any of these flowers in your garden, have a look and see if there are any of our bees foraging for nectar.
