Seem to come over UK more in harsher winters. Seen none this year. In 70s when I was a kid can mind some bi flocks. We were picking them up off the ground at the base of buildings n walls etc. At the time and bein very young we thought suicide! Found out years later it was fermenting berrys. They were pissed! Some were dead but some recovered. This often happens in Scandanivian countrys ive read. atb.
