More Hovers

Not too much to report today as busy packing for our trip up the Yorkshire Dales. However i did spot a couple of new hoverflies for the year: Syrphus rebesii and Merodon equestris. The latter one is a pest of bulb plants such as Daffodils. The one I saw seems to have grabbed a territory in our front garden just where you might expect right over our Daffodil patch.
