Llangynwyd sewage works

New species of hoverfly for the valley, i've been searching the marshy habitat near the sewage works for Chalcosyrphus nemorum all spring in the hope of coming across one, but today i not only found one but 3, one was on buttercup next to the road the other two on vegetation near the Marsh marigold in the woods a new species for me personally so very happy also the first of the Platycheirus rosarum and granditarsus that has been recorded on the UK HOVERFLIES face book page this year
