I take it all back ... a few days of sunshine and the garden is positively buzzing and I've never noticed such a variety of bees here before.
I'm sometimes asked how I spot so many insects, so here's my attempt to explain. Tuning into the insect world involves a complex combination of hearing and seeing.
With more than 97000 weevils in the world it's going to be quite tricky to properly identify this one even with a decent photograph (which this is not!).
If I had known then what I know now
I would have started this diary years ago
