A general look around , in not very good conditions , was what I managed today .
Many thanks to Greg for correcting the above . It is in fact a Cuckoo Bee of the Nomada sp. probably N.goodeniana .
A couple of specimens of the Conopidea sp. were found nectaring on Black Knapweed .There seemed to be Robber Flies-Asilidae sp. everywhere , making more of the species .From the top , a female Scorpion Fly looks an attractive insect ,but , side on , only a male Scorpion Fly would think so from this angle .At last some fungi , found deep in woodland ,both are specimens of Amanita citrina-False Death Cap . At the base of a large Beech , I found Meripilus giganteus-Giant Polypore , probably announcing the death knell for the tree .And the most exciting moment of the day , when the WW2 Lancaster appeared overhead in a hole in the woodland canopy .
