Batman visits Hastings Country Park.

Among the myriad hoverflies that attend hedgerow flowers around the Country Park, some are more readily identifiable than others. There is one that has unmistakeable markings. Myathropa florea is a large and brightly coloured hoverfly whose distinctive pattern of markings on the thorax looks a bit like the Batman symbol. It is a widespread and abundant species that can be seen anywhere around the Country Park between April and November.
