I was wondering if I have robbing going on or not,  I made this video a day after installing SBBs  which required me to take hives down to bottom boards.  The good thing is they are not bearding anymore.  please leave comments here thanks

Nice video. I have some to post later on when the weather permits.
 :)Your bees are orientating to their new SBB and it looks like some young bees are out for their first orientation flight,s.
It does not take much to throw off their flight pattern.
The orientation flights will settle down after a few minutes whereas robbing will intensify!
If robbing is a potential problem I would inset the entrance reducer. (the wide side.)

They look like happy bees to me. I always look at the landing board and if it looks peaceful, then I believe they are ok.
