Secret Scotland

If it's secret, and in Scotland…

Cream coloured recital ‘friend’

I was momentarily distracted from today’s organ recital in Kelvingrove, when something ‘different’ appeared on my programme.

First time I’ve seen one with anything other than the usual black spots, this cream spotted ladybird decided to drop in for a little walk.

Apparently not even rare…

Ten-spot ladybirds (Adalia decempunctata) are extremely variable in colour and pattern. They can be cream, yellow, orange, red, brown, purple or black, with up to 15 spots. They live in deciduous trees and hedgerows and overwinter in leaf litter and beech nut.

Now that I’ve seen more, will they be like buses, and loads will now turn up?
