A Swarm of Beekeepers.....
When we were in Newcastle today we came across this group of beekeepers learning their trade underneath Byker bridge at the Ouseburn Farm.
The growth of beekeeping is apparently one of the factors that led to Newcastle being voted Britain's Greenest City and the city council even has a web site devoted to beekeeping and bee conservation, here
Urban beekeeping is a fast-growing hobby and has several dedicated websites - e.g. here and here and there's an article to read with a lot more links here
