This morning as well as looking for any possible new migrants that may have come in overnight I was interested in finding any spring Hoverflies to add to my species list for our area.
I focused on the many of Blackthorn shrubs in blossom at the end of the small pond at Toad Holes Beck. There were an odd Hoverfly about but I was drawn to a rather colourful Bee which was feeding.
The Bee turned out to be is a Tawny mining bee, Andrena fulva a new species for our area, which is excellent news…
There were however, no new migrants found or any increase in numbers noted.
