    Went to check the apiary........police armed response unit doing drills with machine guns 20m from hives. Wee bit put out the security guard didn't mention it as I drove into the site.

    Hopefully the hives wont be riddled with bullets when I go back tommorrow. Ho hum.

    Tried again today and was told to just carry on at the hives. Was fairly entertaining to be looking at frames whilst hearing constant "stop police, put your hands where I can see them GET OUT THE CAR!!" every ten minutes as they all had a go at stopping terrorists.

    Bees were grand with it.

    No bullet holes then? I used to have a super with air rifle pellets embedded in it. Long before my time, I got it secondhand.

    Back off to Colonsay today. Keeping everything crossed for a bit better weather. Andrew recons he hasn't had the weather this year - overcast and sea mist.

    Give him warm greetings from his supporters on SBAi! Some of his stock will be contributing to the collaborative breeding effort we've started in east central Scotland.

    The bees are hungry and tetchy in this bit of the east. I squirrelled away a box full of OSR deep frames ('for the winter') and I've just put them all out into 3-5 frame nucs to keep them going until the weather and forage improves.

    Reporting back on the ants setting up home on the crown board - no sign since I scattered cinnamon on it. Result
