Our local colony was out in force when I went to see them in late May (28th or
29th - I haven't got my notebook with me for the precise date) about a month
ago.  I normally only get a chance to see them once a year, so I don't know
how they are doing now, but I guess they are either over or getting to the
end of their flight period.

Anyone else have more precise info ?
