Its definitely getting cooler and that brisk southerly wind wasn't helping. A few warblers about with Willow Warbler and Blackcap along Penn's Weare. There was a posse of gulls following one of the fishing boats as it headed back towards Weymouth and a Peregrine Falcon was the only other bird of interest.
No butterflies about, very few hoverflies though I did get a Dead Head Fly (Myathropa florea) and just a handful of Common Wasps on the flowering Ivy.
In Penns wood the usual Harlequin Ladybirds in the nettle patch at the top of the slope and also a few new ones just under the Lime tree before the main road.
Here are a few images from this evening.

And a Garden Spider (Araneus Diadematus)

This the larvae of the Harlequin Ladybird
A bit of a mixture but Blackberries and Honeysuckle.
Just managed a quick but sadly short video of the Spitfire.
