October 1st, 2019

Very windy, try and sunny - around +20°C. Unfortunately too windy for sharp and usefull fotos.
A lot of Phasiinae still around (expecially Phasia obesa and Ectophasia sp.), a lot of "green" flies (Lucillia sp, Neomyia sp, Pyrellia sp., ...), many Bellardia sp. and a few hoverflies - Eristalis tenax, Eristalix arbustorum, Sphaerophoria sp, Episyrphus balteatus and the ubiquitous Syritta pipiens (no photo, as they hover around all the time) - most on Erigeron sp. and Achillea sp.

Another two observation days

Work from home is quite fine - one can go outside at noon, when insect activity, expecially flies, reaches its peak. Even on relatively cold, windy and cloudy days like Friday (4th) and Saturday (5th October). If temperature is something around +16, 17°C flies like to busk in the (invisible) sun on large leaves - in my case the leaves of the - now in the fall slowly decaying - pumpkin plants of my landlord. The growing mold on the leaves seems to attract quit a lot of flies. Erigeron and Achillea are still blossoming.
