Beautiful day for a change today and I tried to sit out in the garden. I thought all would be well but after about two minutes clouds of midgies appeared and zoomed in on me. They don’t actually seem to bite me (unlike R who they always go for) but they fly right into my face and make sitting out very unpleasant. Then even once you are back in the house they are in your hair.
The pine martens don’t seem to mind about them though and nor does Tora. It must be having fur that protects against them so maybe I need to grow some.
