Hi all, we have a new colony here at Anglia Ruskin University in Cambridge, thanks to Andrew, and they are doing very well! I'll post some photos soon. I've been getting things sorted out, trialing different forage materials (they've settled on privet, rose & bramble at the moment). The reaction to the colony from staff and students has been fantastic, so many people really interested in them and student projects being set up soon.

It's good to be back on here! :D

We have been due to go down to snag this for a while. Cant wait to see how they are doing. Thanks, Jackie, for soldiering on with the door problems pending our much delayed visit!! I think your colony will look amazing given some time! Pics would be great!

Really sorry everyone, I can't embed the photos of our new colony. I'll have to put the shared links instead.

Stunning! The floating glass feeding tables look great. No missing any of the action even as they cut the underside of the leaves.
