I’m no saint but it is St Mark’s Day.
Keep an eye open for St Mark’s Flies – with their black hairy bodies and dangling legs – not like me at all. Although before we mucked about with the calendar this would have been around 4 May rather than now – but with global warming everything is getting earlier so I guess you may find some now if you are lucky and look hard!
With which species would you like to share a name? And what would be the names most appropriate for well known figures?
How about: George Osborne’s Leech, Usain Bolt’s Swift, Humble’s Katydid and the MI5 Bug? I’m sure you can do much better – please do!
