15 August 2012 - East Malling Research, Kent

A meeting with a colleague in one of the apple orchards (as you do) at East Malling, provided a passing opportunity to look at some of the mini-beasts loafing the apple canopy.
Attention was quickly diverted on to something small on one of the outer branches - a fantastic Red-belted Clearwing!
After collecting the camera to get first shots, I then managed to get Adam Whitehouse and John Clements in one the discovery - see Adam's blog for his version of events and images of the 'Clearwing Twitch'!
