All beekeeping is local. In East Dorset, the June Gap is here with a vengeance! Walking around Holt Heath last week, a National Nature Reserve, I could find absolutely nothing of interest to bees bar a few, very few, bramble blossoms.
By contrast, the following day I was visiting (with a nuc taken from my TBH) a friend on the county boundary near Lambert’s Castle, overlooking Marshwood Vale. Everything was much greener; there were flowers everywhere including white clover, which was being worked by a bumble bee. It took another couple of days before the clover bloom reached here.
