Flying ants

Last week there was a flock of black-headed gulls above my back garden and much higher there were swifts wheeling around.  Both species were feeding on flying ants – so I contributed my observation to the Society of Biology flying ant survey.

I wonder how many more of these I will see?

This was good fieldwork – sitting with a glass of Rioja in hand!

  1. All the best fieldwork is done with beverage of choice in hand.

    A few cans of Scrumpy Jack and I'll survey anyone's garden.
