Audio recording: Bees in the roof of our backyard shed

A colony of bees has suddenly (this afternoon) taken up residence in the roof of our backyard shed and is spilling into the inside as well. There is a slight opening at the back of the shed where the colony have made their passage. I attached a single lapel mic to the end of a broomstick and very carefully (gently) stuck the microphone in the opening to capture the sound of the colony. This is in mono, but the recording captures a variety of activity over a seven-minute duration(with a little suburban sound on the periphery) I’ll see if I can make a stereo recording later on; but it may be a bit tricky given the small size of the opening and not disturbing the colony too much.
