Blog Postings

The postings will be introductions to each of my life lists. The lists themselves will appear in the side margin. I shall do some postings about particular localities and there will also be postings to provide updates every time I add a new species.
Please note that I am not qualified in any aspect of natural history - there will therefore be occasional (or, apparently, in the case of the hoverflies, a lot of) errors.

A Psyllid


There are not many major families of British insects of which I have never photographed a representative but when I found a Psyllid (one of the Jumping Plant Lice) on an Oak leaf at Thurstaston on 30th June it proved to be a first from that family. Which one it is I do not know though it may be a Trioza species..
