I watched the reeds move from side to side. This went on for a couple of metres before the Bittern climbed up the stem of the reeds. The stems bent over with it's weight the bird stopping about a third of the way up. It had a look round for a few minutes before taking off on a reasonably long flight across the reed beds. The bird was seen at RSPB Blacktoft Sands.(1882)

This colourful little insect is one of many species of hoverfly that occur in the UK and is one of the few with an English name in common usage.

The marmalade hoverfly is a common visitor to gardens where it nectars on flat-topped flowers and rests on vegetation. There is often an influx of them from the continent and at such times large gatherings may form.

It is a small, orange and black banded hoverfly and is widespread and very common. Hoverflies are useful insects to encourage in your garden as most species, including this one, feed

 

Marmalade hoverflies are one of the smallest (0.9 – 1.2cm), yet most commonly seen hoverflies in the UK. With black and orange stripes, the adults resemble wasps, but they do not sting. As their name suggests, they are masters of hovering and are often seen hovering in front of flowering plants. The larvae are leech-like in appearance and can vary in colour from light brown to dark green.

Adult hoverflies feed on flower nectar and help pollinate some crops, but it is the larvae that are important predators in the garden. The eggs hatch into larvae that will voraciously feed on aphids and help to control their

Adults feed on nectar and pollen. Yellow flowering plants or flowers with bright yellow pollen such as lilies are particularly attractive to marmalade hoverflies. Hoverfly larvae feed on aphids. Marmalade hoverflies can be found wherever flowering plants are present.

 

Grow plenty of flowers to attract hoverflies to your garden. Adult hoverflies favour plants that produce high levels of nectar and pollen, particularly those that have yellow flowers or produce large amounts of yellow pollen. Tolerate small aphid outbreaks in spring to help support a thriving summer population of hoverflies.
