3rd June 2018
On Sunday Cathy & I took Rose to Whitlingham for a walk with some friends. I sometimes have to be reminded not to dawdle on social occasions, but I managed to find a few bits and pieces as we went round without holding us up too much. These included the leaf mines of Phytomyza artemisivora in Mugwort, a Myathropa sp, five species of sawflies (sadly none actually identified to species) and the best looking of the bunch, a Hazel Leaf-rolling Weevil. I had seen the leaf rolls created by the latter on a number of occasions, but don't remember ever seeing the adult weevil before.
