I was at Finch Foundry yesterday with the National Trust team meeting the contractors who are going to write the Conservation Management Plan. Luckily we were in doors as it poured with rain most of the morning. As the meeting ended the rain stopped (well it turned into a very light drizzle) and the sun came out. I was amazed that out of nowhere dozens and dozens of hoverflies appeared on the various flowering plants. Here are a few pictures I took.
This is Leucozona glaucia – looks like a hoverfly wearing a pair of cool shades!
As I write this it is still raining but the weather forecast suggests it will have stopped by 8am – lets hope so…..
