Did some surveying at Cliffe Marshes RSPB this evening. A few lovely Orange Footmen in pristine condition. A small selection of pugs included a possible Oak-tree - the pattern looks right but I thought the wing was a little pointed.
As I packed up the traps, I was more that a little surprised when a Great Silver Diving Beetle landed beside the last of the illuminated traps - a wonderful beast!
