Attacked by Midges

I went for a walk yesterday with my son’s dog we want up the path from Riverwood towards the farm at the top of it.

Imagine my surprise when just before I got to the top of the dirt road I was attacked by a rather large swarm of midges.

This is December!

The midges should all have died long ago.

They must be about 150 in human years

It just shows you how mild it has been this Autumn and Winter so far.

While pleased about that, one wonders if it is global warming that is causing midges to be swarming in Winter.
