At St Andrews Park, Simon found a Banded Damoiselle which is an amazing discovery and a first for the park, while I just saw a Sphaerophoria sp. hoverfly and a Crab Spider Misumena vatia

In the flat last night was a Flame, a Swallow-tailed Moth, lots of Rush Veneer and a couple of Ermine species. A Harlequin Ladybird and a Birch Shieldbug were also attracted to the light.
