Stuart and I have just returned from a short trip to Scotland - orginally intended to do some sampling for the Scathphagid Gonarthrus planiceps but things went a bit wrong - we had insurance problems!

We finally managed to visit 25 10km squares in 3 days (plus the drive home on the fourth day). It was jolly hard work as there was not much about and the weather was not great. We had a big problem with access into poorly recorded squares and found that many putative access roads were private and not viable.

The most useful point was the value of broom as a (? pollen source) - big banks of broom can actually be very value as a lure.

Highs of the trip - lots of Sphegina siberica, one specimen of Parasyrphus nigritarsis, a couple of sites for Parasyrphus lineolus.

Regards

Roger
