Swarm was lost. They may have been boxed. I missed the opportunity to learn more about interacting with bees in an appropriate manner.
I interacted with the swarm for the whole day, slowly getting confident to show them the way into a cork hive. Eventually they all came in (before the day died) and they just started to build these beautiful long bee-threads. They seemed to like their new home!! I put a slate stone on top as it was going to rain that night. In the morning...my link with the natural world truncated once again.I have lost my new friend.
