View Full Version : Race to keep bees

07-06-2013, 08:18 PM
I was listening in to Isle of Man radio, yesterday as Iím a fan of the TT races. Cameron Donald who is riding at number two this year is, apparently, a beekeeper. He is an Australian but is based in (I think) Northern Ireland. Is he a mate of Jonís I wonder? Definitely a conflict of interests there, going racing during the swarming and queen rearing season. Tut tut!

Big fan of two wheels but sadly no engine in my case. Pure pedal power.
Don't know the guy.

You'll have to start a list of famous Beekeepers or should that be famous people who have /do keep bees?

Just found out that Dougie MacLean the singer/songwriter of "Caledonia" fame keeps bees in Perthshire.

He came along to a Meet the EFB event at Murray's hospital apiary a couple of summers ago, and I did a talk for him at Perthshire Amber last year.
