207. Red Mason Bee Osmia bicornis - first one seen along the verge. This species breeds in our 'bee-hotel' but not seen any emerge yet.
209. [A plant bug] Liocoris tripustulatus - common bug found around nettles.
210. [A weevil] Apion frumentarium - found on the front verge, one of a distinctive small group of red weevils, although determining which requires close examination. This species feeds on docks.

213. [A centipede] Julus scandinavius - found under a log.
215. [A fly] Bibio johannis - common species at this time of year, close examination required to rule out other Bibio species.
217. Barnacle Goose Branta leucopsis - two flew over late afternoon, first picked up on call. These will be from the naturalised population in East Anglia, with previous evidence linking birds in Shotesham in summer to those found at Buckenham Marshes in winter.
