Is it unusual for ants to have nubtial flight long after their main one?

This is pretty normal behavior. Most ant species have more than 1 nuptial flight in each season.

I had a flight of unknown camponotus at school in late october. Caught 7 queens, all were fertile, so i'm guessing it's pretty normal.
