St Mark's Fly

St Mark's Day, ( 25th April) is the traditional time when the St Mark's Fly ( Bibio marci ) emerges.

There are an amazing amount of them flying and feeding near the coast at The Maer but also on the paths near Foxholes. They are covering the Alexanders there and there are also a great deal of ladybirds, of various species in the same location on the same plant.
