    I've never ever seen any of these until this morning when i was passing by a pub(with a sewer plant across the road) when i looked into a patch of woodland and raising i'd say 30ft above the tree canopy there looked like 4 plumes of smoke....Odd i thought so i got to work and my Dad had seen them too and he told me.

    I saw them on the way home again tonight so tomorrow night i may try and take pictures of them, amazing really :D

    Yeh Midges have been a problem. Another major problem this year have been Mosquitoes, more of them than I can ever remember. Been bitten quite a bit by them this summer, they must like me ;)

    Funny that this thread should suddenly crop up. A few weeks ago I remembering how, as a kid, I used to watch distant plumes above the plane trees visible from my parents' house almost two miles away. I don't remember it happening every year, and it was definitely a summer event. I don't think I've seen any since.
