St Andrews Park

Had a quick stroll through the park today. Saw a weird creature next to the pond which looked like something out of a sci-fi film. Turned out to be the larva of a Stratiomys Soldierfly! Never seen anything like it before. Also saw a 14-spot Ladybird, several Marmalade Flies, and a Picture-winged Fly (probably Tephritis neesii).

At Montpelier Station I saw an interesting spider on the wall and there was a colourful display of Ox-eye Daisies and Red Valerian on the disused platform.
