Anyone live near Fordingbridge? Swarms

I think I can point them at four swarms. Just checking on this.

Just missed a swarm - had a call from a friend, but by the time I got there they'd flown on.
Oh well, next time!

Today was "next time"!

Heard a swarm in the hedge at lunchtime.

Went & shook them into a skep, left it all afternoon, then as it got cooler went & picked it up. I've just 'walked' them into an empty box.

It began raining just at the right time to encourage the last few into the box. Very Happy

Lucky you. We got to a swarm minutes after it had left last Sunday. Next time...
