The wind went round to the west overnight and the temperature climbed by 8 degrees compared to yesterday. It coaxed out a handful of butterflies – small tortoiseshells and peacocks – and then flying ants by late afternoon. I couldn’t see them but I could see the sky full of black-headed gulls soaring and flycatching like swallows.

A would be swallow when there are flying ants around - a black - headed gull
