UBKA had a recent visit from Nicola Weir of BBC Radio Ulster, who wanted to visit some bees and conduct an interview.
Nicola visited Dawn Stocking of Killinchy & District BKA at her home, where she was suited and introduced to the bees. Nicola wanted to know how beekeeping was in general, following the reported losses and poor season we all experienced in 2013, and left us fascinated by the life of the honeybee. Her piece will be aired in the near future, in the farming section of Evening Extra, and potentially also on BBC Radio 4.
There’s a chance there may be a follow-up interview in more detail if the first package is well received, watch this space!
