Following a visit by V. zonaria a couple of weeks ago V. pellucens has just turned up, feeding on Hebe sp. then resting and cleaning on Choisya.
Kettering, Northants: SP853788.

Can somebody please comment on whether this is a frequent occurrence for this area.

Thanks for your help.

Phil

Many thanks Phil

This is a pretty widespread species in the Kettering area. You can pull up maps from this site - they will give a fair indication of the frequency - see

For V. pellucens

Thanks Roger

Fairly new to watching things non-avian but it has been a surprise what comes to the garden!
