A sunny morning visit before work, with a westerly breeze blowing. Was hoping to find some Dingy Skippers Erynnis tages on the wing, but none were found on this visit, Orange-tip Anthocharis cardamines, Green-veined White Pieris napi and Speckled Wood Pararge aegeria being the only species noted. A few hoverflies observed included Eupeodes luniger, Epistrophe eligans, Leucozona lucorum and Rhingia campestris. A couple of other nice fly species were a Bee Fly Bombylius major and Murky-legged Black Legionnaire Beris chalybata.
A few true bugs were found, with this site being a good spot to see Hairy Shieldbug Dolycoris baccarum on the White Dead Nettles. Woundwort Sheidlbug Eysarcoris venustissimus and Liocoris tripustulatus being the other species found.
A couple of beetles found included my first Common Cardinal Beetle Pyrochroa serraticornis of the year, a common species here, along with Thistle Tortoise Beetle Cassida rubiginosa.
Full set of photos from this visit can be found on my Flickr site.
