Moor Copse – 25th May 2010

Today the weather has been sunny but not as hot as the previous 3 days so this lunchtime I popped down to Moor Copse to see what was flying. It wasn’t very busy but there were some nice tachinids – notably: a lot of Zophomyia temula flying in and out of the low vegetation; Thelaira nigripes; quite a few Tachina fera (first brood) flying around a hedge; a nice pimpline ichneumonid with a long ovipositor; plus a selection of sarcophagids that I will have to work on over the winter 🙂
