@fidgetbones Gosh you're right... I'll never look at a bee-fly without thinking of dementors again...
@oldchippy I've seen a lot of insects this spring too. I think last year's warm weather ensured that there were a good number going into hibernation in autumn. And it seems the wet weather since then hasn't impacted much on numbers (that would be my guess). Bumblebee queens everywhere. Is lovely to see.
