I have decided this year to start to record Bees, Ladybirds and Hoverflies in addition to the other species frequenting our recording area. The reason for this is to try and establish what species at breeding and visiting as well as their status in our recording area. It will be a big task especially when time is limited but hopefully an enjoyable one…….
Anyway this morning I photographed a bee that look quite distinctive and it turned out to be a Tree Bumblebee. The species was first found in the UK in 2001, but is now found throughout the UK after expanding north. It’s status is described as Common.
There was not many moths to identify this morning apart from these two handsome fellows…
Yesterday four adult Herring gulls circled Caldene Fields mid afternoon which was unusual.
