My guess: you see this in the summer, not in the winter.  scp may be
using a protocol that sends date+time information as text, without the
timezone attached.  It may be parsing that text as a time in GMT, or
outside daylight savings time.  When you're in daylight savings time,
your times may show as being out by an hour.

But that's a guess.
