It was great to be back on the Ecton Brook campus today after not seeing them for a while. All the girls had deserted me this week, but the boys were superstars and worked really hard. However we had a bit of trouble with ants! Clearly, while we had been on Easter holidays, ants had decided to move into all the patches we had cleared. We didn’t mind too much though, because it meant we got to have a really good look inside their nests and at all their eggs. Fascinating!
