First up, four beetles from Ketton Quarry ....
And three from Whetstone ....
I actually went to Huncote Embankment with a specific reason - Wild Liquorice - though I failed to find it on this quick visit. Possibly I wasn't looking in the right area, more likely my pathetic botanical skills failed me as I just didn't have the right search image in my brain. I did find some other plants/flowers though .....
Bee Orchid - really pleased to find these flowering again this year, plus I found them in three different spots
I also potted a few inverts, but perhaps the most interesting is this stonking hoverfly ....
Hi Mark,are the Bee orchids in the same general area?
I actually found them in three spots Dave - most spikes on the usual slope, in the long grass on the left at the top of the first steps and next to the fence opposite the second steps (up from the pond). They were all pretty much gone over apart from the ones in the long grass (which seemed an odd place to find them).
