Field Notes - Black and yellow ‘bush bee’ as i know it or Hoverfly i think is its correct name. Buzzing around strawberry and spring onion flowers. Seems to like the spring onion the best.

Temporarily caught in the web of another spider into which it jumped. The web spider was smaller and came rushing over before being eyeballed by the jumping-spider and making a quick turn-around.
