Picture of Harlequin Ladybird.

We went to Gibraltar Point National Nature Reserve Wonders of the Wash event in Skegness, and this rare insect visitor to the East Coast landed on my sons trousers.

We were told the Harlequin Ladybird is originally from Africa and is a predator that eats anything it sees including our native Ladybirds, but on the net there’s mixed views on this. If anyone has any information please leave a comment below, I’d love to know more
