Abia sericea
Yesterday afternoon I found this rather impressive sawfly in my Peasmarsh Garden. I believe it to be a Cimbicidae species possibly Abia sericea. I haven’t seen one before but whilst trying to identify it I found that I had a photo of a Abia sericea larva in my unidentifed box since last year from Beckley Woods.

THE Sound of Spring

On Monday a Cuckoo was calling in Udimore and today there was one calling at Winchelsea Beach. So for me Spring is here and no doubt the weather will become cold and wet!
(Cuckoo also at 3 Oaks today – and LS Woodpecker! Green Sand flying over. Cliff Dean)
