Wildlife News: The sunny weather brought out a few insects but the temperature limited numbers. Several queen Buff-tailed Bumblebee and a Peacock were on the wing and the early spring hoverfly Cheilosia grossa was foraging on Sallow in the Buffer Zone. This is new species for the recording area, which has very few Devon sites.
