    Old lime tree at the side of an ancient byway. For scale the knobbly bit is about 7 feet across.

    Dactylorhiza maculata Common Heath orchid. Not as many about as usual. On the coast path a few hundred metres north of us.

    You are right. It is one of those sort of things that usually fly away the moment you get the camera out as they are equipped with very sensitive camera radar.

    A seriously big flying beetle landed on our front room window. A longhorn beetle of some kind. It was good for 30 to 40 mm long.

    Hadn't seen the starlings for a while. Yesterday however what a racket when they all appeared back. Looking out this morning, they're with young ones decimating the feeders

    Spring may have been a challenge in the garden but wild flowers have thrived. Skived off for a walk down to the coast.

    I thought soldier beetles were a different colour, but having found this brill ID chart of all types of soldier beetles I agree.

    I still learn something new every day!

    Could be soldier beetles,they eat pests & help pollinate. There was a hedgehog in the front garden at about 10.30pm just now
