22nd June 2016 – Bees, butterflies and other pollinators

IMG_20160622_144842008_HDRIzzy, E, my mum and I joined another Legacy to Landscape event, this time in a hay meadow near Wilmington. Armed with collecting jars, we searched amongst the Corky-fruited Water-dropwort, orchids and Knapweed for pollinators and other insects, which Martin Drake of Axe Vale and District Conservation Society identified for us. We saw Cleg Flies, Soldier Flies, Soldier Beetles, Red-tailed Bumblebees, Meadow Brown Butterflies, a Common Blue Butterfly, Leaf Hoppers, Grasshoppers, Flower Bugs and much more besides. And amazingly, the sun actually shone for a couple of hours.

Total Wild Time: 2 hours
