  1. Amazing, you're already spotting hoverflies in February? Posted 7 months ago
    1. Yes! Winter in southern europe, especially i the south where I live, is not harsh in cold temperatures, especially nowadays with climate change, there is almost no rigorous winter. Two weeks ago a cold from front the north made temperatures descend to 3ºc in the night, but only for two or three days. Today is 21ºC where I live. Perfect for early spring species that now are emerging. Cheers, my friend* Posted 7 months ago, modified 7 months ago
      1. Lucky you! That said, here in the north the coming weekend temps will rise to about 12-15ºc, with nights around zero. Not that bad for February. Glad you're starting the season early :) Posted 7 months ago
