Over the festive period I paid a couple of short visits to Earlham Cemetery in Norwich.
One particular corner of the site proved to be good for overwintering ladybirds and I managed to find quite a few. 95% of them were Harlequin Ladybirds in their numerous guises but I also found Orange Ladybird, Cream-spotted Ladybird, Ten-spot Ladybird, Seven-spot Ladybird and Pine Ladybird. They favoured the gravestones, particularly those that were cross-shaped, sheltering under the cross. Rooting about had it's other benefits too as I found Walnut Orb Spider, Green Cellar Slug, Canestrini's Harvestman, Hawthorn Shieldbug and a new fungus for me Wrinkled Club. The usual Jays were there and a flock of c25 Siskins around the treetops.
