Yet another warm day with a maximum of 27.2°C. Still a week to go before the end of the month but the mean temperature is currently at 19.8°C. This is just 0.3°C below my all-time warmest ever month of July 2006. It is going to be close.
The warmth and humidity this afternoon brought out a wonderful sight of countless flying ants swarming up into the beautiful blue summer skies from their nests in the ground. What a stunning spectacle and something I haven’t seen on such a scale since I was a child.
