Noticed my colonies were bringing in heaps of nectar and beige pollen en Masse the last week. On quadding around the National Park, I finally found evidence, branches on the ground with flowers of flooded gums.
Pretty chuffed I found out the source. Those trees are so high, you can’t see any of those tiny flowers from the ground.
However, today as of lunchtime, my hive scales are telling me, after a great big morning income, there is now a significant decline.
Does anybody have experience with flooded gum flows?
Just hoping it’s not over yet and the bees just have to find others in pockets of the NP with different flowering timing.
