How bad are the mosquitoes and midgies this time of year on the Dales Way?

Doing the whole Way on Sat 19 June was plagued with midgies on approach to Ribblehead. Was left with lots of little bites. That was the only place I noticed them and was not too much to worry about.
Just a nuisance at the time.

As of two weeks ago, they were only bad after Dent Head, but it was very hot and a bit blowy, but camping anywhere near any of the rivers and you get bit.
