St Pauls Park

Not a lot as far as birds were concerned this morning, just a couple of Greenfinches, a few Collared Doves and 3 Starlings were highlights.

Insect-wise, there was a tiny greenish bee which is likely to be Lasioglossum morio along with a couple of Syrphus hoverflies and a probable Melanostoma hoverfly. I took a photo of some flowers I assumed to be Spanish Bluebells but this proved controversial on Facebook, with some people wondering if they were actually Hybrid Bluebells. I don't think anyone actually concluded with a definite ID.
