Saltmarsh Hoverfly

In 2010 I made a search on Harbour Farm for the hoverfly Lejops vittatus (RDB2) which is a scarce and local coastal species associated with sea club-rush. This species had not been recorded on the reserve before so it was pleasing to find it. This morning I took the chance to search the same area and found several adults at two locations amongst the flowering heads of sea club-rush.
