I havn't done an awful lot of hovers this year, but I took to opportunity to do a short list when I was up on common near Welshpool yesterday.

Nothing spectacular, but I keyed out a Cheilosia to C. vernalis, which was a first for me, so I was pleased....It was on sneezewort and angelica. Most of the rest of the list was on angelica.

18/08/2010 at Y Frochas Common (SJ194082)
Cheilosia vernalis
Lejogaster metallina
Chrysotoxum bicinctum
Platycheirus granditarsus
Syrphus ribesii
Episyrphus balteatus
Eristalis arbustorum
Eristalis interruptus
Eristalis pertinax
Eristalis tenax
Rhingia campestris
Syritta pipiens


This reminds me that I was going to email Roger an excel spreadsheet of all my records from the past 3 or so years. I really will try and sort this out soon.

Hi Alastair, Good to see you can still find time to record some hoverflies in mid Wales. In mid-June I drove along the main road between Newtown and Builth Wells and stopped off several times in laybys, from where I made quick forays into surrounding countrsyide. Theer was lots of interesting looking habitat and got a goodly few records. I would thoroughly recommend trying this route out - it has many laybys so there are plenty of places to pull off the road. I hope to do the route again next year in a different month.

Hi Alastair - yes it would be good to have your records - we are hoping to produce an atlas in time for the Syrphid conference in August next year - copies will be limited distribution but significant recorders will get one - I'd imagine your records would be above the 150 mark we have set.

Regards

Roger
