I have spent a while researching that Nomada sp. which I photographed in our garden in May 2013. I had commented that it might be the first record for Thanet; it might just be so? I have managed to nail it down to one, of two very similar species. Nomada flava or N. panzeri - just one one Thanet record, pre-1980, of the latter!
|Nomada flava/panzeri (?) - only one Thanet record ever!|
So what difference does this sighting make? If I hadn't been in the garden then nothing
would have changed - so pretend I wasn't there!
Don't throw your dummy out of the pram - I'm as guilty as everyone else. I contribute nothing to the bigger picture. None of my sightings are reported to the "higher echelons" for formal inclusion in any format; my sightings are a purely selfish indulgence (apart from my C-R records).
