Ladybirds

Post by chrisjohnson » 02 Aug 2012, 19:57

This afternoon we noted a large gathering of 11-spot ladybirds. Far too many for a local emergence: over 500 were counted just on the fruit cages and polytunnel. I am aware of mass migrations along the channel coast but this has the flavour of a huge movement. Might be worth keeping a lookout. No images available at present but the two adjacent spots on each wing have merged giving a rather dark appearance.

I noticed over a dozen in the garden this afternoon & I rarely see them normally.
