St Andrews Park

A few good insects near the pond and meadow area today despite overcast conditions. At the pond was a Mint Moth Pyrausta aurata and a Sphaerophoria hoverfly. There was a Green Lacewing larva in the meadow - the first one I've ever seen - and a Syritta pipiens hoverfly. The only butterfly was a Small White.

Back home, a couple of Holly Blue butterflies were flying around near the ivy in the garden. There was also a Scalloped Oak moth nearby.

At the station there was an interesting-looking Cranefly species sat on the wall but not much else of note.
