We are heading into warmer and lighter days in Europe, lockdowns or not. And no surprise, the pollen is faithfully here.
Pollen from alder and hazel on decline
There have been fairly high levels of pollen from hazel and alder in Europe over the last few weeks. However, it looks like we have passed the peak, levels for these two species are now declining in Western Europe.
Birch is coming
Birch pollen is a major cause of allergic reactions in Europe. April and May are normally the peak for birch pollen, and as expected we see the spread starting in Central Europe, Switzerland and France.
The birch pollen release will strengthen and move northwards as spring progresses. You may want to take a look at our video displaying the normal birch pollen development in Europe.
