    Default Mark Winston's Website

    I'm not at all sure how I've never come across this site before but it's certainly worth watching:

    His book, 'The Biology of the Honeybee' is worth buying.
    It is good on biology and also good on bee behaviour.
    If you are doing any module exams it is really useful.

    True but who do I drop.
    1. Honey bee suite. http://honeybeesuite.com/
    2. Beespoke info.http://beespoke.info/latest-post/
    3. The Apiarist. http://theapiarist.org/
    4. Beekeeping like a girl. http://beekeepinglikeagirl.com/
    5. Bad beekeeping blog. https://badbeekeepingblog.com/
    6. Show me the Honey. http://www.littlehouseonthebighill.com/beekeeping/
    Beespoke has to stay as he/she is Irish I need a local fix. One is English? the others are American, I really like Honey bee suite she posts regularly. Ill buy the book The Biology of the Honey bee.
    Then I have to read all the posts here and on BIBBA and Beesource not to mention the day job posts bees don't pay the bills.

    Back earlier in the year when I started to drastically reduce my involvement with bees I removed various blogs from my feed, some had simply never lived up to expectation and others had dried up -both are common issues. If you're happy with what you get I'd stick as you are, maybe just dipping into the Winston site a couple of times a year to catch up -it's not like you'll have a lot of reading to do! On the other hand, if you are intent on binning one of the existing gang, don't for heavens sake lose Ron Miksha...

    Not sure that I qualify as anybody else, but:

    Erik Osterlund's Elgon blog
    https://www.google.co.uk/url?sa=t&rc...36593572,d.d24

    Also, a newsletter rather than a blog but quite interesting at times:

    UC Davis Apiculture Newsletter
