  1. Hi everyone.
    Sorry that I still won’t be able to join in. Have a good day – I hope the weather is kind to you and that you find lots of interesting bugs! There are several bumbles still on the wing – Bombus pascuorum [long tongue], Bombus terrestris [short tongue] , etc. There may be cuckoos too;
    bye for now,
    Maggie
