Ladybirds

Entomologists might inspect the post and board fence and gate posts around the Shed where we have a whole cluster of ladybirds. They appear (to the completely ignorant eye) to be of different types as they have a variable numbers of spots. They also appear (ditto) to be hibernating as they are inert but clearly not dead. Yet they seem very exposed to the elements.

A jay in the Orchard the other day and a pheasant in the Flora Field recently.

    According to Helen Hicks, her house, nearby, was indundated by huge numbers of ladybirds the other day. They appeared to have been blown in on the wind (many different sorts)and were all over the place. So I suspect these ladybirds are part of that ‘flock’.
