Lasius brunneus

Having followed the activity of several Lasius brunneus nests in various locations in Epping Forest during the Spring and Summer I have been surprised by observing workers still active, albeit sluggishly, whose nest is located in a large, sawn section of tree trunk. Although in this part of the country weather conditions have been fairly mild the last two nights have been frosty yet on checking this nest today(11th December) I observed two workers moving between nest entrance holes and on checking some twenty minutes later saw one more. This is the latest date recorded for any ant nest activity so far, in previous years I have seen nothing after early November
