So common here in Rishworth and area
A few plants of this, new to me,

Went for a walk today. Found a few Purple Toadflax and some interesting IDs. The above video is what I think is Common Toadflax at the start of the video.

|What is This?|
The hoverfly that I had in a recent post up for ID (the picture captioned ‘ID Hoverfly on Foxglove) I have identified it as Pellucid Fly, looking at the NBN atlas they do not seem to common.
I’ve only seen these twice. Spotting them in my water-butt I told my partner Annie without giving the common name, as I think it’s a bit pejorative. (Rat-tailed Maggots.)
She got this video, risking dropping her phone in the water. You can see their intestine through their skin. We can’t work out if they’re feeding on floating vegetable matter or drowned insects.
She was delighted with them as I thought she would be, and found out they are the larvae of a kind of hoverfly – news to me.
Her suggested new name for them is Chevron-larvae.
