Ann Chilcott has been keeping bees in Nairnshire since 2004 and currently manages 12 colonies in
several apiaries. She is qualified to Scottish Expert Beemaster level and involved in education at local and national levels. She spends a lot of time on practical hands-on mentoring of local beekeepers,
teaching children about nature and the environment, giving presentations, writing articles for
journals, supporting her local beekeeping association in key roles, and sharing knowledge worldwide
through her blog: www.beelistener.co.uk
Observations at the Hive Entrance
This presentation is about what a beekeeper can learn from careful observations without opening a
hive and disturbing the bees. It has evolved over the years as the bees teach Ann many more new
lessons, and it includes things seen a little further away from the actual hive entrance. It is a
presentation thoughtfully prepared with all stages of beekeeping experience in mind, and its
purpose is to share the joy of watching bees.
