Another scorcher of a day, and lovely to see a Spitfire over Wakeham as it timed its run into Weymouth Bay as part of the Armed Forces Day Celebrations this weekend. The Spitfire flypast coincided with the start of the service of remembrance at 11:00am. More here

Whilst I was standing in the back garden a large "green" dragonfly flew up and down the garden. A Southern Hawker maybe. And as I walked back indoors a sawfly landed on the conservatory door and then onto the window sill.

An unusual fly flew into the conservatory and after a bit of research it turns out it is a Snail-killing Fly, Coremacera marginata, and is a member of the Marsh Fly family Sciomyzidae

Also in the conservatory two micro moths to ID.

The Spitfire over Wakeham on its way to Weymouth.

A sawfly on the conservatory door.........

...........which then landed on the window sill.

A very small moth.........

........which was about 4mm in length. One to ID later.

I caught this in the conservatory last night.

And it is a Snail-killing Fly, Coremacera marginata......

Certainly an unusual looking fly.
