Ladybirds

Mum mentioned she’d seen an unusual looking ladybird in her garden in the Midlands. She’s heard of the Harlequin ladybird and asked if the one she’d seen might be one of those invasive species. I found some information and thought I’d share as the UK Ladybird Survey is asking for your help through reporting any ladybirds you see and where you see them. They also provide an identification sheet (see picture), and lots of activity ideas for children – just click on the link below to find a downloadable ID sheet, and a website on ladybirds especially for children:
