Warm spring 'affecting wildlife'


May 25, 2007

A warm spring has brought about the early arrival of some UK wildlife. Over the past few months, amateur naturalists have logged more than 24,000 first sightings of six key species of plants and animals. Members of the public were asked to record the dates they have first seen red-tailed bumblebees, frogspawn, flowering hawthorns, seven-spot ladybirds, peacock butterflies and swifts. The Woodland Trust said it was worried "because the changes are so rapid"...This has been our earliest Springwatch year, well ahead of the normal time we would have expected to see these events 30 years ago."
