Moved the 3rd colony of bees to Dalkey this morning

Myself and Wesley managed to carry the hive on the left up the the other hives this morning, it was a tough climb and the hive is pretty heavy. It has plenty of stores and should get them through to the spring. So now I have two national hives and a national nuc up here at the moment.2015-02-04 08.37.50The plan for this apiary is to do a shook swarm into a new poly Langstroth hive when the nuc has reached capacity. Then divide up the remaining national frames of brood and stores between the two remaining national hives, that will give them a great boost coming into the summer.
