Norfolk ladybird invasion

About a month back I went to North Norfolk for a weeks bird watching. It was about the time I went when the ladybird invasion began. On the 3rd of August an article was published in North Norfolk News:
The ladybird invasion is predicted to last until the end of September which is having its toll on tourism on the North Norfolk coast.

Throughout my week in Norfolk I counted a total of 18 different species of butterflies including White Admirals at Holkham Hall, A Dark Green Fritillary and Small Coppers at Weeting Heath, and of course the common visitors; Comma, Red Admirals, Peacocks etc. It was a fantastic week for butterflies and the few months.
