This weekend it was still about, so I grabbed a quick cheeky record shot before moving on.
My attention to the area of the roadside that held the Parent Bug was actually drawn by the emergence of a few longhorn moths bouncing about, Nemorhora degeerella
And this species has re emerged, earliest I have had them....
|Small China Mark ( record shot from 2012)..just 1 present on pond|
A little colony of 6 24 Spot Ladybird's was busy in the grass
|Not a new species|
The special bit of Lep' of the day was finding this pristine ♀ Brown Argus. I only get one or two sightings of these in a year, if I'm lucky.
With the aid of my scope, I confirmed Red eyed Damselfly were on the fishing pool, sitting on , obviously, Yellow Water Lilly
And finally, just to prove I have not completely neglected the plants again...
Common Mallow and Yellow Flag Lilly and Foxglove,Oxeye Daisy all noted (easy ones I know, but that will do for this week )
