Confused bees and flowers in Devon
The recent climate changes in Devon has confused flowers and bees new research has suggested. Flowers have been blossoming far quicker than normal and bees have nested and produced honey earlier that what would usually be expected.
It is said that this confusion is because of the sudden cold and warm temperatures that Devon has experienced over the last few months. In march temperatures reached a peak of 22 Degrees then they dramatically fell to 10 degrees in April.
This led to flowers dying quicker and the usually Spring look was greeted by wiltered flowers and ready to eat honey. One week there were thousands of bees and flowering plants and then the next week there was nothing explained bee manager Kate Tuke.
