|14-spot Ladybird, Propylea 14-punctata|
On Saturday I checked out Lobb's Wood, a short walk away. I found the expected Speckled Woods fighting and a Red Admiral. I see these two butterflies here every year in a glade in the middle of the wood. There has been an influx of Red Admirals from the continent recently brought by the southerly winds. Among other interesting insects I found a Hoverfly larva eating an aphid and a bedraggled Yellow-legged Mining Bee. Disappointingly I did not find any micromoths.
