Now is a great time to spot hoverflies in your garden & the countryside. Totally harmless, these insects use batesian mimicry to trick predators into thinking they are bees, wasps or even hornets! A gardener's friend, the larvae of several common species enjoy gobbling aphids!

Buddleia isn't just great for butterflies. It's home to many small invertebrates that chiffchaffs, blue tits & more have been foraging for outside our office windows at over the past wk or so. What a great plant

kits rely on their mum to choose a safe site in which to nurture them; often in a hollow tree. To help martens we are installing den boxes in trees with few hollow trees. One day, we hope to see a sight like this! (Pic: J. Birks)

When is a hornet not a hornet? Other insects have cottoned on to the fact that these striped predators inspire fear, and use this to their advantage by copying them in appearance!

Millions of flying ants have been taking off on their mating flights across Sussex. The Black Garden Ant produces large, winged queens at this time of year, which incredibly synchronise their mating flights with thousands of other colonies all on the same afternoon

What we might think of as weeds may be fantastic food for bees. For example dandelions and foxgloves are an excellent source of pollen and nectar. Leaving a corner of your garden to grow wild is an easy way to help our precious pollinators! πŸπŸπŸŒ±πŸ’›πŸ–€
