Some of you may already know that I keep bees, I was out in my shed messing about with my air pistol re doing the latest target competition when I heard the sound of a swarm. I ran out to check on my hives, they were all calm and going about their business as usual so the swarm must have come from elsewhere. To cut a long story short I got them strait into a hive with a perfect natural capture and I have a new colony. This is only the second time I've captured a swarm where it has gone strait into the hive, usually there is a great deal of messing about climbing trees or cutting your way into hedges. This must have been my lucky day.
