NORTH NORFOLK: More broomrape & some hoverflies

25th June 2016

On Saturday afternoon I headed to north-east Norfolk to have a look at another population of Purple Broomrape. Thanks to some good directions I located them quickly and as this part of the coast was enjoying a sunny spell I spent a bit of time sat on the clifftop scanning out to sea for birds or porpoises. On my way back to the car I spent some time checking the flowers for insects, seeing a Painted Lady, several Volucella pellucens and Volucella bombylans hoverflies and some Tephritidae fruit flies.
