Starvation Risk

A warning about colony starvation has just been released by defra's BeeBase:
With the continued spell of poor weather in many areas of the UK, reports are coming in from Regional and Seasonal Bee Inspectors of starving bee colonies, where the beekeeper is not aware that the bees are severely short of food, or the colony(s) have already starved to death.
Feeding advice and further details can be found here.
