More new garden insects, 9 May 2024

Maybe 'no mow May' is having a positive impact on the garden fauna in IP21

I found two more new insects on Thursday although in reality one of them found me! A miniscule but lovely 16-spot Ladybird landed on my arm and along our side hedge (featuring hawthorn, bramble, ivy and privet) I found an equally good looking Privet Sawfly with it's distictive bright red femurs.
