A busy day beekeeping

A large swarm clustering in my neighbours hegde , I managed to catch it and got them to go into a nucleus hive.

Yesterday one of my hives swarmed and I thought it had returned to the hive as they sometimes do, but when I went out this morning they had instead clustered hanging under the hive, so I put a sheet down and a nuc box down with wax frames in and they all went in. I saw the queen go in as well which is a good thing.
