This year I have seen more "new to my garden" insects than ever before....... But the bats are missing this year, the foxes are shy this year, but the hedgehogs are back. We have solitary bees in the lawn, beeflies predating on them, tree bees in the bird boxes, bumble bees in the veg plot, rat tailed maggots(dronefly)in the comfrey feed. The ladybirds ate all the red and black aphids.
The squirrels are eating acorns and leaving the sweetcorn alone.
