The standard gravity slide method of obtaining hay fever pollen counts is examined in relation to the volumetric method. Scrutiny of calibration data in the light of weather information reveals three interesting weather-related sequences of pollen concentrations. The gravity slide counts appear to represent the pollen concentrations quite poorly.
