14.00 -15.45. Reverse of the walk done on 28-ix-19. Some good patches of flowering ivy attracting the RAs, which during spells when the sun was behind the clouds descended to settled on the plough-soil, or flew to nearby branches and tree trunks. One tree had 7 RAs settled on it at one point. Why don't they sit out the temporary shade and remain on the ivy?
