While I was waiting for the Red arrows team to come over, I was entertained by colourful hoverflies buzzing round our flowers. I’ve been looking at them more closely this year and have identified 10 different species – and those are just the ones that are big and slow enough for me to get a photo.
|The Red Arrows - not a great photo but I was pleased to get a camera on them at all.|
Towards the end of the some days, swifts screamed overhead. Apparently they never stop flying, not even in sleep. As summer drifts into autumn, these summer visitors have started their long migration to Africa.
