Hive Entrance activity

After many days of rain followed by a week of freezing temperature, we finally had a sunny weather today. I checked the hive at round 11:30pm and was surprised to see good activity on the landing board. The reduce entrance was looking too small at times. It is just wide enough to allow 2 bees to go through, side by side.

It looked like some of the bees were flying away from the hive, not just only around, as in cleansing flights.
There was a lot of wind, but the hive is partially sheltered.
Hopefully all is going well inside.
