Hive No 4 brood frame

Alan dismantled the now collapsed hive no. 4 and here is one of the brood frames. It looks like the bees just hadn't got enough feed to survive the winter. It's a fine line between gaging whether they have sufficient feed to last and opening up the hive to administer feed when it is cold and damp in winter - a deadly combination for bees. I have to take responsibility for this but will put it down to experience...
