Not many in the way of flowers for insects to feed on these days. The one exception is Ivy. This must be the best years I have seen for the amount of flowers on my Ivy. Some in the front hedge and a clump at the back have been attracting scores of flying insects.
While the Sun was out yesterday one clump was attracting bees which were filling their pollen sacs.
Outnumbering the bees were flies by the score:
They are making the most of the dwindling pollen and nectar supply as the flowers are fading fast.
A mainly pictorial record of the wildlife and events in my part of Lincolnshire. My garden has two bird nest boxes and a Hedgehog house fitted with video cameras. There are several bird feeders and a large pond attracting a variety of wildlife to the garden.
Most of the pictures in the main part of my Jottings can be clicked on for larger views.
Many of my video clips are stored on my YouTube account.
Thank you for visiting and remember you are always welcome to leave any comments. John.
