You have some Hardy girls then, what type of bee's do you keep up there in York?Hi, the temperature was based on my car reading when arriving, admittedly the site is sheltered and there was a little sun, but even if that raised it slightly I was still surprised. I didn’t see pollen going in so must have been nectar, however on thinking the plants will have been in the sun for longer than the hive so we’re obviously able to provide something or the bees would not have continued working it.
Regarding water, the area in general was quite wet plus there is a small lake that the bees access which is closer, so they wouldn’t go there to collect water.
It maybe that they are just bees which go out in colder weather as a split from them on another site is very similar.
Anemometer I use one of these if I remember it, and the batteries haven't been used by my lad who's very handy with a screw driver for a 6 year old.
You would be very supprised, you drop altitude and the temp changes get in a secluded sunny spot and temperatures can change quite a lot wind speed also plays its part on temperature.
