Winds Light to Variable
Here's one I took yesterday. Still 18 degrees, after the warmest September ever. Mind you it's raining again today. So far I've collected 62mm -!!!STOP PRESS!!! and make that 77mm- in our back garden this month and the Met office predicts rain for the next five days.
Lots of lady bug activity as well. I can't make a positive ID on these, although the 2 on the left have about 18 spots, they don't look like the 18-spot ladybird 'Myrrha octodecimguttata'. I think they are variations on the 10-spot 'Adalia decempunctata' perhaps. And the right hand one might be a 2-spot ?
