I was called out at the beginning of June 2009 to take a swarm of bees that had settled in a bush in the Witches’ Craig Caravan Park, Blairlogie by the manager of the site Mrs Veda Dewar. The taking of the swarm went very smoothly, and very luckily for me Mrs Dewar agreed to take a video of the proceedings which she did with great expertise and also great courage, as she was wearing shorts at the time, though I did provide her with a veil and gloves to protect her head and hands. The video clip shows the taking of the swarm. Photos below

The first photograph shows Mrs Dewar dressed as she was while acting as my camera operative.

The second photo is a close-up of the box when the bulk of the bees were settled on it and going in quite rapidly.
