    One of our sources of free bees. Did occur to me that it might be a new nuc that's been put in there but there was a colony in there on its own comb a few weeks ago.

    I think that it is some sort of bird nest hotel. Maybe organised by position in the food chain, blue tits, robins, starlings, owls and kestrels. Or something.

    Same as all my posts!

    Whoever is at the top of that mal assembled piece of woodwork can't be feeling too good.

    So, the top box has some frames on one side and none on the other.Are there top bars? I'm wondering what the middle box is for.Could it have been for shaking the bees into the bottom box?The entrance which should be towards that hedge (if the windows are at the back) would appear not to exist, judging from the floor.Perhaps to prevent Nellie's bees from entering
