These little blighters are super smart. Years ago we were tenting and on the day we had to pack up it was raining ... not heavy but enough to have to pack wet gear.

We used umbrellas to maintain some 'happiness' and the midges thought this a good idea and joined us 'out of the rain'. Guess who got wet :flee:

Midges
OK, someone answer me this:-
With so many midges at varying heights, where were all the swallows/sparrows/bats etc zooming in and out for food? :scratch:
Whales, if offered a whirling column or krill, would vacumn vertically all the way to the surface.

It probably wasn't filmed at around the strictly observed, standard Scottish tea time. Apart from bats, which - I believe - a nocturnal creatures.

From my limited (two days) experience in and around Edinburgh, every clock had stopped at tea-time.
It was always time for a pot of rich tea and a plate of disgustingly addictive fresh baked scones with a tun of fresh cream and a ton of strawberry jam.
I never went back, being, at the time, afraid of the reaction of my doctor/GP.
