Having just read the Swansea & District newsletter about the last of the swarming season I looked up to see a swarm flying down the valley from our apiary. I walked down the lane in hot pursuit to see them make a sharp bank to the right over Townend Farm and then up the hill behind the houses. Never to be seen again.
Ungrateful lot I thought as I had just fed them after their long confinement with the rain. Surely they had better things to do than swarm.
