Lunchtime stroll

Time somewhat limited at present, but a short lunchtime stroll by the river notched up at least five more - Barren Brome, Common Club-rush, Common Bird's-foot Trefoil, the hoverfly Episyrphus balteatus and the micro-moth Psyche casta, in addition to a pocket full of beetles for later inspection. Plenty of species out there, not enough time to work on them...

  1. Heavy homework load tonight, but produced the goods with four beetles (Cantharis pellucida, Cantharis nigricans, Oedemera lurida, Oedemera nobilis) and a hoverfly (Cheilosia albitarsis). Suspect these are all pretty common and won't faze the opposition at all, but pleasing to develop my own knowledge anyway.
