Buckfast

Attended microscopy course at Buckfast Abbey (legendary alma mater of British bee breeding).  Here’s Brother Adam’s microscope

Had a ball learning to prepare pollen slides and identify pollen in honey samples (sadly no eucalyptus but this can wait for return to Oz).  Also found Nosema in a sample of bees from a diseased colony.

And here’s the teaching apiary at the Abbey.image003
