.. So this afternoon I went out into the garden and there was just millions of the buggers flying up to the jaws of doom circling above, in the skies.

Anyone else had them today?

Is today their 'day'??

My memory from being young, is that they always seemed to surface on days that were suddenly hotter than normal, perhaps with a bit of humidity.

Is that random, misfiring synapses, or is there something to that?
