Covid-19 lockdown garden species project - Poecilobothrus nobilitatus fly

Garden watch week 10

Garden watch week 10

70 consecutive mornings i’ve posted a different animal found in our garden during Covid-19 lock down here in the UK. Something that I envisaged running for around 30 days has now hit the 10 week mark and all the critters are getting smaller and smaller! I guess if i could ID every single fly and bug this project could run on for ever, but I can’t. So it won’t. There’s still a few birds missing and we’re a bit light on butterflies at the moment so lets see what next weeks weather brings.

The last 7 days are as follows:

70 days, 70 pictures.
