I definitely got hawthorn last year. There is a long hedge of it close by which we walk by daily with the dogs and I could see the bees working it. Not only that the hive reaked of hawthorn blossom in the evening. I never saw the honey as the bees ate it in the June gap :(

Driving round yesterday and the gorse is still flowering. OSR is still flowering but it looks like it's finally starting to finish in many fields.

OSR a mile away still in flower, plus sycamore, hawthorn and now raspeberries, loads of grey white pollen. Its warm the sun is shining and I have started removing surplus honey. :D
