      Description

      The bug

      Bees can end up wandering around randomly, apparently forgetting where their nest is and how to return to it.

      I generated a number of worlds and noticed this behavior. Here is a seed with a nearby bee nest at 130, 71, 114, where you might replicate this issue: 1940698433

      Attached is a screenshot of a bee that never returned to its nest during the entire day, wandering around a few chunks away from its nest near sundown. The tree attached to the nest has been marked with a gold block.
