Mid Bucks Beekeepers Association – December 2016

It has been a difficult Beekeeping year for many of our members, the late Spring and short periods of available forage has resulted in lower honey yields than in previous years. The ivy flowers this year were in abundance which helped the colonies to build up stores for what is predicted to be a cold winter. After a short break our Winter programme of monthly meetings continues with a Quiz on 18th January. The New Beekeepers course starts on 20th February and is open to anyone considering taking up Beekeeping or those just interested in honeybees, full details can be found at www.mbbka.org.uk.
