June bees.

Our first swarm this year was on May 28th, It moved itself straight into a prepared hive. This one on June 5th landed conveniently on a stake right beside the bee hives.
The stake had been used to support the autumn raspberries last year.

Here the bees are gathering.

Once the swarm settled, the stake lifted easily with bees attached and the swarm was popped into a nearby hive.
