Montpelier Park!

This morning some rather flighty insects in the park so photographing them was somewhat difficult! My first Leaf-cutter Bee of the year was feeding on the bramble flowers and a Helophilus pendulus hoverfly was basking on a leaf nearby (sadly flew off before I could shoot it). Another frustration was not being able to photograph an attractive black and yellow Ichneumon. Several Honey Bees were busily feeding in the park.

The railings at the back of the park were festooned with Black Bryony - haven't noticed this plant here before!

Birds included a Jay, 2 Woodpigeons and a female Blackbird.
A Speckled Wood butterfly was seen from the train while it stopped briefly (well, not that briefly) at Narroways.
