Oxford Bees

Colony 05

Submitted by will on Fri, 06/04/2018 - 20:00

This colony was from a feral swarm from Fettiplace Road in Barton. It was collected in early August 2016. I suspect that the feral swarm is a Buckfast type because of the look of it, and the ubiquity of Buckfast.

It was moved from Headington to central Oxford on 12th May 2017.
