Sunset, North York Moors, September 2009

Andrew Tyzack has collected his honeybees from the North York Moors, returning them to his home apiary in East Yorkshire. At sunset the bees returned to the hives allowing the entrances to be closed. They were sufficiently heavy to make the thirty metres to the car quite a struggle. Suggesting that this year the bees have produced a decent crop of heather honey. Excellent crops from the moors only come once in every five years. Andrew will now begin the process of harvesting the honey from the hives.
