Swarm

From one of my own hives in an out apiary. Got an email saying bees gathering at entrance last night so I went to check them out today to see that there was a prime swarm on the hedge. Luckily I had a NUC box with foundation with me. I managed to shake some of the swarm into the top of the NUC and then wedged it into the hedge to see the rest start to find their way in. I checked the parent hive to find 9 frames brood and 6 Queen cells sealed.
