    One hot day this week I saw something I haven't seen before.  I took the lid off my compost bin to add something, and lots of my woodlice friends scurried for cover.  Most of them hid in the compost, but quite a few stayed in sight.  They kept lifting and lowering their little legs a few at a time, but remaining stationary.  I wonder if this is something they do to lose heat, by creating a bit of an air current?  Perhaps it's a dance, and I'd interrupted a ball, or a disco party, or maybe they were practising semaphore signalling.
