Borough Woods


















Pictured above are some pics from this morning along the banks of the Wansbeck in the Borough woods. The top pics appear to be a variant of Common spotted orchid, it has no spots on the leaves and unusually it was growing in dense shade on a steep bank with Common twayblades. Below that is Betony, two insects that I don't know the name of, slimemould Fuligo septica flava and Common Jellyspot.

The moth`s got me stumped Nigel, but the Hoverfly is Volucella pellucens.

Thanks for the id. I've looked in my moth book Stew and it looks good for twin spot. I took a few pics. There were a few of them flying about in the clearings. Hoverflies and small bees and wasps are a headache for me to identify Dean.
