I thought this was a Garden Chafer,
but I am informed it is a Dune Chafer (Anomala dubia)
Hoverfly Volucella bombylans
You can just see Robin Rigg, the tide is so far out it looks like you can walk to the turbines!
Beach to ourselves
Mini Thistle Forest!
The Ragged Robin is almost over with but still looks lovely
This landed on my trousers…
…its a Four-banded Longhorn Beetle…
Drinker Moth caterpillar
Another Reed Bunting-I never quite manage to get a clear shot of one!
Large Drinker with 10p coin to show scale!
Regal Piercer (Pammene regiana) – I think!
