Ivy is out!

Tuesday 18 September 2012
With a good sunny day and the Ivy in flower it seemed ideal for a Butterfly transect at Ewelme. Never mind the quality - feel the width! The total for this rather short transect amounted to 19 Small Whites, 14 Red Admirals, 13 Commas and a single Small Tortoiseshell. 

The Ivy was buzzing with bees and hover flies including this huge Volucella zonaria.
