Turned up this evening to move the nuc frames into a nice new brood box, only to discover that the nuc frames did not have spacers on them, and the brood box does not have castellations. Positioned the frames by eye, placed the feeder on the crownboard, and will return with spacers.
This evening I picked up a nuc from East Surrey Bees, and popped them into the apiary.
The endeavour followed my usual form: the light was fading, and my goodness I am out of practice. Still, the girls should be happy in their new home. I shall turf them out into a brand-new brood box and frames tomorrow evening, and add feed.
