A fine sunny and, most importantly, warm weekend has finally brought the insects out in force. Many butterflies about and some moths in the trap on Sunday night. The bluebells and the longhorn beetle were at Shire Hill Lodge Woods on Saturday.
The Andrena bee is one of many nesting in the garden lawn along with it's wasp-like Nomada cuckoo seen disappearing down one of its hosts' burrows.
