Cwm Drysiog

Bright sunshine after 3 days gardening was an opportunity not to be missed. Few insects about, bird life rather quiet except for a few Chiffchaff, Siskin and Linnet. Butterflies included Red Admiral, Wall and Speckled Wood. A Diamond Backed Moth was on Hemp Agrimony along with Anthophila fabricana. No Longhorns today, lots of flying ants emerging. 10 Species of Hoverflies weren't to bad considering its October. Tachinid fly Dexiosoma caninum also present.
