What a contrast in the weather with cloudy and windy conditions replacing the lovely warm sun we had been enjoying over the past few days. The only real highlight was a pair of Swifts over Easton.
In the back garden and inside the conservatory several Marmalade Hoverflies (Episyrphus balteatusa). On the wall a 7-spot Ladybird and a bee which I think is an Andrena scotica landed on a leaf on the Cherry Tree which allowed me to get a real close-up before it flew off.
On the neighbours chimney pot the Herring Gulls are now feeding a hungry chick.
A Marmalade Hoverfly.
It's not often you can freeze a shot of them, let alone focus on them.
I believe this is one of the Andrenidae species.
And could well be an Andrena scotica
Hopefully I will be able to get the correct ID.

And finally the Herring Gulls have a hungry mouth to feed on the neighbours chimney pot.
