06/05/2016 Insects in the garden but not on the fruit trees!! Hope there are some pollinators around that I have missed.
Maximum temperature 22C, minimum 10C, 69 kms/h SW winds.
On the choisya ternata a hover-fly of the Syrphidae species. It was very windy and the few bugs around were not out on the apple trees.
Looks like a bumble bee of some kind. Possibly Bombus pascuorum? Noushka says it is a fly though so I am sure she is right.
A fly! Blue bottle ?
My guess is a type of fly, I am not even going to try and identify!
Looking for insects - Common Lizard.
Pheasants Eye, Adonis Aestivalis
The tiling is coming along but it looks like we are due rain which is going to call a halt to everything!
