After a very slow start to my 2013 Ladybird-spotting, [no] pun intended, the situation has suddenly improved. We counted 14 Seven-spots at Snape Maltings last Saturday, in the sunshine. Some were definitely red while others were more orange in colour. They were all swaying about on stems of long grass.
I have logged these sightings with iRecord via the UK Ladybird Survey.
