Creigiau garden - new visitors
Three new visitors to the garden, two species of fly and a beetle - none of which appear to have many records in VC41. All three are approx 4 - 5 mm and very distinctive in appearance, so I'm fairly confident with the IDs.
Palloptera muliebris - This is one of the 'Trembling-wing Flies' and was continuously on the move, so I had to try and get images through the sides of a plastic pot. Apologies for the resulting soft images.
