Watching the bees

2 May

Ahead of our Beekeeping Weekend this month, Idle Beekeeper Bill Anderson shows us his bees.

There is a real meditative joy in sitting and watching bees fly in and out of their hive. Here you can watch Bill Anderson’s bees do just that.

Bill filmed his bees on the sliver of his roof in the centre of London, bringing the rural idyll right into town. Bill’s day-job is directing big TV drama – his episodes of Doctor Who are on at the moment. He doesn’t want to be overburdened by beekeeping so he has devised a system which demands only two days of beekeeping a year. That allows a lot of time for meditative bee watching.

Bill’s new idle beekeeping course is out now. Watch his trailer here.
