I was really surprised during Tuesday’s walk to see so many ladybirds still about – not only adults but also a lot of larvae, and this one pair of adults that obviously thought it was springtime not late autumn.

On one small section of nettles growing along the road verge there were over 20 ladybirds.

Unfortunately, every single one was a Harlequin ladybird – not a 7-spot or other species to be seen.
