Swarm! 2

The buzzing penetrated my awareness deep inside the house. When I got to the window I saw the whole of my garden buzzing with bees as they swarmed from the hive there. It took me two tries to get them into the top bar nuc box as I missed most of them hiding under the trampoline initially. But they went in happily enough and are still there today. Fingers crossed!
