So, Kentle Wood it was. Limited but convenient, and you never know...
Here and there an odd clump of hogweed, Heracleum sphondylium, was in flower. Even on a dull day it will receive a few insect visitors but in these temperatures there was almost a queue forming, the commonest, by some distance being the hoverfly Syrphus ribesii, a very common wasp mimic.
