More Digger Wasps and Friends

Another visit to the sandbank produced a few more species including the Red-banded Sand Wasp with its prey - a moth caterpillar, the splendidly named Astata boops both male and female (with its prey - green shieldbug) and a Red-legged Spider Wasp (without its prey!). Great sightings of the beautiful little cuckoo wasp - identified on-line as Hedychrum nobile or H.niemalai but still no Cerceris wasps as hosts seen. A few more Bee-wolf flight shots and a single hoverfly reflecting the relative absence of hoverflies at the moment
