It was chilly in Cambridgeshire first thing this morning with definite frost but the sun is shining and it is warming up gradually. Very pleased to see the first 7 spotted ladybird (Coccinella 7-punctata) taking in some rays on my purple sage. I'm always reminded of a day trip to Hunstanton beach about 20 years ago, we took the children but couldn't get out of the car for clouds and clouds of ladybirds! Do these 'plagues' still happen?
