Wildlife sightings in the Montpelier, St Andrews, St Werburghs and St Pauls areas of Bristol, UK

I was delighted to see my first ever Dasysyrphus tricinctus hoverfly on the wall on the station approach. Sadly it is a rubbish photo as the fly didn't hang around. It is a coniferous woodland and heathland species so I'm very surprised to see it on the patch. Also there was a Eupeodes corollae a few inches away. A Wolf Spider was basking nearby. An Orange-tip and a Small White were seen on the disused platform.
