Freezing October? Really? I was sat outside the White Hart inn in Ford, on the A420 to Bristol on Sunday, during a walk from Castle Combe and back, and there was a very large bumble bee buzzing around the flowers they have in planters outside, and there was a wasp flying around at work today.
Up in the Cairngorms it’s been clearly below freezing, but in the south and west, and probably most of England and Wales, pretty mild, really.
Going to get cooler by the end of next week.
