    Was it you prakel? Or perhaps it was Robin? I met him at a thing in Florida recently. My brain really is going to mush.

    At least the weekend is nearly here ... time for wine and beekeeping. Separately.

    Default Scottish native bee on a thistle ...

    D'oh! Wrong sort of bee. Common carder, Bombus pascuorum, I think.

    I expect the Amm were all out hammering the lime. For once we had a lovely calm evening and you could hear the trees humming with activity from 100 yards away. It sounded wonderful (to a beekeeper at least).

    Thanks to the 40 odd members of SNHBS who attended at the weekend ! Great fun and very informative. Hope to run similar workshops next year and to start on a larger survey.

    No idea of the full 150 strong membership DR but if the workshop was representative then a high proportion !

    One of the surprising aspects of the day was the number of Amm like types that people brought along from their stocks. Obviously it can look Amm and have wings like Amm but still not be. Encouraging though. A bigger survey is planned next year so hopefully can get a better idea of the situation.

    There's some info online now at the SNHBS website to help you identify Amm, DR.
    You might have some - or perhaps just near native.

    I'm sure if the bar is low enough to include Bees kept in Perthshire the I'm bound to have them in Angus as well
