Continuing a busy month, members of Dean Forest Beekeepers explored a Drone Congregation Area near Ross-on-Wye on Sunday 9th July. The group flew helium balloons at heights of over 10 metres with a virgin queen suspended below the balloons, and as the photos show, successfully attracted drones from a congregation area nearby.

Many thanks to Isabelle and Stephen Green for organising the hunt and providing the virgin queens, and to Isabelle and Jim Vivian-Griffiths for the photos.
