Seeing the Changes 483

In Loughor, masses of Two-tailed bristletails (Campodea fragilis) had infested a moribund Hollyhock. We were also visited there by a Pine weevil (Hylobius abietis). In Gorseinon, Columbine (Aquilegia vulgaris) was in bloom and nettles attracted Phyllobius pomaceus and Propylea 14-punctata beetles. A Small white (Artogeia rapae) butterfly and a Helophilus pendulus hoverfly were also noted.
