Queen No. 1 found and marked!

Hey, I might make a beek yet!

I found and marked the new queen in D's hive (the one with the sheep guarding it).

She's only small - but she is laying. No photos unfortunately.

So she took from 2nd May (as a sealed queen cell) until about yesterday (29th May) to emerge, get mated, and start laying.

Whew! Relief.
