To most of us the sight of a bumblebee is a clear sign of spring or summer and the warm weather that we at least hope for at these times of the year. However since the late 1990’s, an increasing number of sightings have been recorded of Buff-tailed Bumblebees during the winter months, particularly during December and January.
The recent mild weather has seen reports of some unusual wildlife sightings. Many sightings are much later than usual, such as butterflies being spotted in December; others are occurring many months earlier than normal.
