Sid Day

 Sid in the lab (with a Bee-fly, some water fleas and a few moths- Hebrew Character and Early Grey) 
 Holly Blue- the first ones have appeared over last few days
 Eupeodes luniger? (Updated the Farmlands Hoverflies list HERE)
Bee sp (Adrena Bicolor?) . The dandelions were providing most of the feeding opportunities. Caught some Bees from a colony in the obs garden and reckon they are Adrena flavipes. 

A bit cool and windy today but Sid and I found the path along the North Lake to have plenty of insects hiding from the wind.

Pretty quiet on the bird front (cool westerlies not the best for visible migration here- keeps all the birds on the continent). A couple of LRPs, Willow Warbler, Blackcaps, Chiffchaff and a few Swallows.
