Anyone else experienced the ladybird invasion on our North Norfolk coast. It was/is truely something out of a horror movie. There were black clouds of the little critters, and if one was brave enough (ha ha) to walk amongst them, then one became covered in little red bodies with 7 black spots on each one. Cars drove along with hundreds of red bodies clinging to them, and when parked alarms sounded due to the sensitivity of some vehicles and having so many ladybirds on the body.
Now I like ladybirds, find them quite endearing little things, even cute, but believe me, on mass they are neither endearing nor cute. Wonder how many children and adults will now have nightmares about them.
OK I have ranted enough..........................

All over now, but I was told about it when I arrived in Sheringham. There's periodic population explosions and crashes along the east coast, Mablethorpe and Scarborough have had the same thing in recent years.

The only way is forward. Now where's the bar?
