2-spot ladybird

2-spot ladybird
(Adalia bipunctata)

There are 42 species of ladybird resident in the British Isles and this is one type of 2-spot ladybird (although it seems to have more than 2 spots at first glance, only 2 of the markings are spots!)
Gardeners’ friends, ladybirds feed on aphids and other garden pests.

Birds seen: Great tit, dunnock, woodpigeon
