I think that the lady fireflies lie on the ground and flash, while the males fly about with their lights constantly on.

Yes - finally there are some mates!  There are a dozen or so tonight.

I guess it could be a post in memory, how pleased (not) she would be. We are well past the 5th of April and still no fireflies. Bee-eaters arrived here today, so only the fireflies and Golden Oriel to go for us. Has anyone seen a firefly this year…? Yes, I know only too well they are normally a lot later!

None here yet, but I think I’m probably a bit higher up than you. At the moment the air is full of the scent of lilac and the sound of strimmers😉

Could it also be the moon phase has an impact, it's very bright on the side of the land we normally see them first?
