The wasps and bees are prolific, and this one was certainly getting stuck in!
The Holy order of Hornets
The nearby church gardeners shed was home to a hornets nest!
On the gatepost by the church was a collection of ladybirds
After the berry hunt,, with the sun still shining nicely and blue sky still abundant, I tried a little bit bird spotting, but alas, nothing photographable. The time came to pack up and go home, well, I had to pick Mrs PR up from work first, and the ladybirds suddenly seemed to be out in abundance!
I found a friend, that wanted to come home with me....
It was returned to its natural habitat

Common Lacewing. It will be interesting to see what takes up residence in the fallen tree it was on. I will need to log it a bit as I can't leave it and it's partner where they were dropped by the storm
In reply to Germain:
Lacewings, they are delicate and beautiful insects, though I've not seen any since Covid, and that is probably due to not being in the right places at the right times rather than anything else, though I've never seen them here at home.
I'm more of a bird person than insect person but they are still fun to photograph!
Common Darter (I think)
Last month seems so long ago …
Darters hanging out at Pulborough Brooks on 7 Nov.
