One of my favourite things about writing this blog is that I stumble across all sorts of unusual and wonderful things. Sometimes, just by chance, a series of events fall into place and a story emerges. In this case it's the hunchback of Watlington Hill, the strange incident of an orchid photograph, a rare fly and social media at its best.
I was asked to write it up for the newsletter of the Soldierflies and Allies Recording Scheme and you can read the story on page 3 of the newsletter. Exciting to have one of my discoveries written up, even if I didn't realise what I'd taken a photo of at the time!
