Why are there flies in Kent, England, on Nov. 3 as winter threatens to start?

Growing up in Australia…flies were annoying in summer, they would swarm and rest on my back to feast on my sweaty shirt.

And everyone else’s shirt.

Now I have three flies tracking me inside at the place I’m staying in Kent, England.

Does anyone know why?

I can think of one possible reason. Sheltering from cooling temperatures outside. It is 7c outside now (45f). Near midnight.

It’s not because I haven’t showered. I have.
