Second hive, from captured swarm

Last weekend the club hive swarmed and due to quick observation from Peter and Mary next door the swarm was tracked to a nearby tree. Ken was phoned and he captured the swarm in a box and kept the box closed up for 2-3 days to enable the swarm to settle.

Rod helped us put a new hive box and base together and with cobbled bits around from all three of us we set out to set up the second hive yesterday behind the current club hive but facing the other way. We should be able to go through this on the weekend at Field Day and see how it is settling.
