|7-Spot Ladybird in my garden today|

|A different 7-Spot in my garden (and the 3rd one scuttled away before I could photograph it!)|
I have seen three more 7-Spot Ladybirds, which makes a pleasing change after my previous sighting of a Harlequin!
I shall be logging these 7-Spots with the UK Ladybird Survey, and would encourage you to do the same if you have Ladybird encounters! If you have Harlequin ladybird encounters, you might care to log them here on the Harlequin Ladybird Survey site.
You might also be interested in Project Noah (networked organisms and habitats), described as 'a tool to explore and document wildlife and a platform to harness the power of citizen scientists everywhere.' I have only just discovered this wildlife platform, but I believe it covers the world. My thanks to Andrea (see Comments below) for setting me on the trail to find it!
