Wildlife News: Sea Daffodil is flowering on Warren Point, the recent Mediterranean weather clearly to its benefit.
Today's weather was less suitable and reduced the numbers of insects on the wing although Plain-faced Dronefly Eristalis arbustorum and Common Twist-tail Sphaerophoria scripta were noted.
