Collected a swarm tonight located in a branch junction of a tree/bush in a lovely old ladies’ back garden. It was quite an awkward position and I had to resort to shaking and brushing the bees into a skep; but think I have the queen and 99% of bees. It looked like a prime swarm though the next few weeks will tell me more as they settle into their new hive.
