Unusually for a bank holiday weekend, the weather was blue-skied and summer-hot after a spectacular electrical storm over Saturday night. My wife found this neat caterpillar on a lilac tree on the Sunday . . .
She was also very aware of green shield bugs on the wing, and found this mating pair while we were gardening. We found several in the garden.
The garden encroached into the house as well, as I found this tiny bush cricket nymph on the kitchen ceiling! This is a speckled bush cricket; we usually have one or two every year, quite often inhabiting the conservatory, and sometimes we have a litter of them. This is the only one we have found so far this year.
