Bee the buzz

Yesterday I recorded at the Linklater Pavilion at the Railway land local Nature Reserve in Lewes. There I attended a talk by Professor Ratnieks who was introducing the new observatory hive they have installed. The new Pavillion is suitably hexagonal, and housed bee activities such as looking at bees and flowers, waggle dance watching and honey tasting. I'm proud to say I picked out the honey produced by the bees at LASI (Laboratory of Apiculture and Social Insects at Sussex University) over the supermarket honey.
