27.5.16.

Friday…Hazy sun…18ºC.

Pretty good Invertebrate day, with quite a few firsts of the year for me. Started off at Wardens, where I saw my 1st Cockchafer of the year. This Cockchafer photo, also got photobombed by a very small Unidentified Spider…

Also my first of the year was this Common Blue Damselfly…

This was just something you don’t see very often. A Large Red Damselfly with a bent abdomen. It seemed to fly about without any problem, but just looked strange…

Yet another first was the emergence of plenty of Click Beetles…

A bit of a fresher looking Green Carpet, only problem it landed in the middle of a Gorse bush…
