Ladybirds are Back!

Monday, March 19th 2012

Last year the Kidney Spot Ladybirds spent several months on the Ash trees at Kidney Spot Corner.  We watched the larvae develop and the new ladybirds hatch.  Then they went 'walkabout' onto other trees around the reserve. Whilst we kept a check during the winter on the hibernating 7 and 16 Spot Ladybirds, we rarely found any of the smaller Kidney Spots.  However during the last week their numbers back at Kidney Spot Corner are increasing.  They have also been spotted along Risedale Beck and the Sycamore Avenue.
