Weather was fine at times but mainly cloudy, there was also a stiff cold breeze, this kept numbers down but I still finished with 21 species of Hoverflies and quite a good selection of other insects and animals.

 Chrysotoxum festivum - one of my favourite hoverflies
 Volucella pellucens
 Agriotes accuminatus - click beetle - new for me.
 Black Darter - face on
 basking Common Lizard
 Stictoleptura rubra - longhorn beetle
 Tachina grossa - one of our biggest flies
possible - Orange-legged Furrow Bee [Halictus rubicundus] [confirmed Irecord]
