Hi rawshorty, cold weather to be sending out queens! Was it sunny when you saw them? Jon

Yes @JonLewis it was sunny and windy. I was there again today and the winged ones were present but it was cold and cloudy with no sun.

Interesting - I’d never have thought they would be swarming in this sort of weather. Thanks for the info. Jon
