Spring is in the air and with a few Migrants like Blackcap in full song, there really won't be long before they're all sat on eggs or feeding chicks. They time it just right as the warmer whether is bringing all kinds of insects out, whether they have hibernated throughout the winter or freshly emerged from eggs layed last year. The Peacock Butterfly is one that actually hibernates throughout winter so you never know how old one actually is. One insect is particularly common at the minute in this hot dry weather and that is called the Dark Edged Bee-fly. I had 4 indivuals sculking around in my Garden today which gave a good 30 minutes to observe their behaviour. The Great Crested Grebes at Llandegfedd are still having their odd courtship but I haven't yet seen their full display this year.
