I am in my second year of BeeWalk and last month when I did my walk (30th June) I was really confused because I was sure I seen a couple of queens.  How early do we start to see new queens emerge?  I was confused because last year was a late spring and I definately didn’t see queens until about August/September time. 

I am almost certain they were queens though, a buff tail and perhaps an early too.  They were large and had the distinct loud hum of a queen bee. 

Would appreciate some clarity from you more experienced bee walkers smile
