Apparently it has to be absolutely dark - a dark room won't do it - passing car headlights, moonlight etc will stop it colouring up.

They'll have been after a swarm of insects Fg - possibly flying ants - it was about then that lots of ants were swarming wasn't it. 

We used to get them doing that over the farm pond, and the muck heap - anywhere there's lots of insects - a fabulous sight 

OK, who's got it?

Just heard on the news that some poor chap spent all day laying a new turf lawn only to wake up the next day and find the whole lot had disappeared. CCTV revealed two middle aged ladies in the act at half past five in the morning.

 

Another reason why it's better to seed than turf  

 

I know I'm awake at 5.30 most mornings, but did they say one of the women was wearing a fluffy dressing gown .......
