Ladybird catches the eye!

 A successful roost session at Charnwood Lodge resulted in a total of 55 birds, this first winter male Brambling being the highlight.
Another highlight was this Pine Ladybird,(Exochomus 4-pustulatus) that was found enjoying the October sunshine. They are black with 2-4 red dots and a rim around the edge of the wing case. I could not help wondering that who ever polishes them does a great job!
