Beehives Not Bee-hiving

This evening I visited the Star Pub at Sparsholt, Oxfordshire, England.  When I parked my car I noticed this lovely pair of WBC hives.  I saw no bees going in and out of these hives but their was a ‘buzz’ about the hives.  On closer inspection this is what I found…

When is a beehive not a beehive? When it is a water-pump!

…the hives were housing water pumps which served the pubs garden.

What is quite ironic is that a week today I discovered a tree housing honeybees which I found surprising (see previous post) and today I found a ‘buzzing’ beehive but no honeybees!
