Weirdness occurred during the night/early morning, when I woke there were lots of โ€˜marksโ€™ on the skylights.

I just took a closer look and they are dead insects, some managed to get inside onto the mesh (which I always keep shut) and some on the outside.

They all appear to be the same creature, just dead...

This would be a cracking place to stop, the view the other side of the trees was breathtaking as I was driving, but the rain closed in very quickly and spoilt it

There is a long wide river running below the mountain, which would have been perfect for flying my drone along

Sadly it looks like the rain is here to stay...
