THORPE MARSHES: A scattering of new insects

17th June 2018

After completing the WeBS count at Whitlingham I nipped round to Thorpe to count there in case Justin didn't get time. It was marginally better than Whitlingham, with 2 Tufted Ducks, 1 Gadwall and 3 Lapwings of note. I did a quick lap, but still managed to see some interesting insects, mostly on patches of Ox-eye Daisies.

 Colletes daviesanus
