Ramsons ... and what you can find on them

Into my local woods in Creigiau this morning in search of the Ramsons hoverfly, Portevinia maculata. Not only did I find several males of that, but also on Ramsons I found a stunning Birch Shieldbug and a Tipula vittata. All three are new species for me, and checking on Aderyn all three appear to be new for my home square ST08 as well. 😊
