I have just seen my first 7 spot ladybird (the good ones that eat aphids) It was sitting on our damp dish cloth by our kitchen sink. I have no idea where it came from but presumably it has been hibernating nearby. We get lots of ladybirds on the privet (I think) bush outside our kitchen window which has an ants' nest underneath who look after the aphids, so hibernating there? Not my picture by the way. Pinched from somewhere on the www.
