Dalgety Bay, NT1783, end of June

A serviceable month with 144 additions

Best of the month was 2nd British record of anthomyiid fly Hydrophoria diabata, though not much of a looker

My favourite addition, though partly because it was very recent was sarcophaggid Metopia argyrocephala, which sadly isn't even new to county, though it briefly masqueraded as something marginally more exotic (other Metopias). This really is a looker, though, with its face flashing like a mirror at the right angle.

It's also been nice to finally wrestle a couple of ichneumonid wasps to ground, including this Diplazon laetatorius.

Securely on track for 1k end of October if not before. The other highlight has been one not of finding things but of harvesting data from NBN that has taken Dalgety Bay total list well over 2k (2074) and that ball keeps rolling every day. It's still a rich playground, though it could do with a larger pond if I was being picky.
