Then I got adventurous, a rather large fly around one of the flowering shrubs looked a good bet. To be honest the photo was the easy bit. Does anyone know how many Fly Species there are? Searching for an ID is a minefield so make the most of it as I'm not sure I can cope with anymore. Not even sure that the ID is right so if anybody can offer any help feel free.
Edit 26/07 : With thanks to Dean via comments the fly is now labelled correctly to genus although not to species.
Next one a little easier and posing nicely, a Hoverfly.
And even easier, lots of Buff-tailed Bumblebees about.
Later on a patch of bare ground which it had to defend vigorously from a Red Admiral, this Painted Lady stood out against the dry soil. Looking spanking this must surely be locally bred rather than a migrant.
