Haven't seen any this year yet, must be a shortage. Was on holiday years ago in Prestatyn a\nd there were swarms of them flying and landing on people wearing bright summer clothes.

One landed on my finger in Lidl today.Must have thought I was a lovely flower.Easy mistake to make.

Was on a programme this evening about the Harlequin ladybirds taking over, they are naughty things, lots of film of them getting their oats and producing even more Harlequin ones. They kill too many good bugs unfortunately and are decimating our native ladybirds.

Did you know they call them "Ladybugs" in USA,
My American friend said they are bugs !
I was quite disturbed by her comment ,and told that they do fly and we call them "Ladybirds"
