Helipad wildlife.

Early morning sunshine at the helipad found a beautiful grass snake basking in the longer grass at the Fairlight Road side of the site. Further inspection of the area found eleven 7-spot ladybirds, one of which was parasitised with a wasp (Dinocampus coccinellae). Nearby were two 16-spot ladybirds.
