Thirsty bees

Swimmer bee! Thirst frenzy Making honey is thirsty work.

Our bees discovered this drinking source yesterday and have spread the message to others in the hives. They have been active there all day but there was a sudden frenzy of drinking activity early this evening. Fascinating to watch and they all do a specific ‘dance’ before they depart. The swimmer managed to reach dry land and buzzed off back to the hive.
