I know around here it will be some time before ants start having their Nuptial Flights but i thought I'd post this anyway. Post what species [if possible] and the day they flew. I will then add them to the list.

That's Lasius Niger, I think we have camponotus down south as I could have swore I've seen workers by Haven and in Cornwall.
Also AbtsBritania YouTube shows him finding some

Camponotus are not natively found in the UK. If they have been found then they have ben introduced.
