Summer not over yet...

Felt a bit autumnal last week, with some very welcome rain, but a bit of summer again today, with a Dark Green Fritillary and second-brood Swallowtail in the garden this afternoon. A juvenile Turtle Dove was a welcome sight last week, plus lots of new insects for the year. It's turning into a good year for moths, with several species I'd not expected, the lastest being Tawny Wave, a RDB species normally found in the Brecks, this one could well have been an immigrant. A Convolvulus Hawk Moth was rather more expected but always good to see. The overall garden list now stands at 2027 species, with 1390 so far this year.

Hymenoptera have been a bit of a feature this year, partly because I've been looking for them, but some nice records in a total of 124 species, with 101 just from the garden.
