Autumn Insects on Ivy

Autumn Insects on Ivy

Witness a last flurry of wildlife activity by enjoying a moment in the sun next to some flowering ivy, which can be found throughout The Living Coast in the autumn.

Honey bees - the most common pollinating insect to be found

Hover flies - mimics of bees, but lacking their narrow waist

Red admirals - the commonest butterfly still active late in the year

Holly blues- whose caterpillars feed on ivy and burrow into the flower heads
