"I don't care what the weather man says..."
I cannot make my mind up about this weather. Yes, it's been cool, wet and at times windy. Agreed, it isn't good for moth catches, butterfly numbers or overshooting bird rarities. But botanically everything is lush. By now we can usually expect all of the late spring stuff to be burnt off, shrivelled up and beyond identification. Perhaps this is good for a number of invertebrate groups? I don't know whether or not those that study flies are rolling around in ecstacy due to a brilliant year, or arachnid botherers have never had it so good. I would like a bit more warmth and sun though - it makes a poor day in the field all the more tolerable.
