Spent the weekend outside the valley with a visit to Kenfig followed by a visit to parc slip today

A nice Volucella Zonaria was feeding on bramble blossom on side of tarmac pavement that runs upto the junction at Maesteg cemetery from Cemetery road along with a nice Microdon and my first Tachina Grossa of the year on the open fields by school. I decided to do a trip outside the valley over the weekend to kenfig pool and parc slip which turned out to be a good decision because i recorded my first sighting of Eristalinus sepulchralis at parc slip today. Other insects of note were 2 Banded General that were feeding on the Hogweed
