An evening walk was interrupted by a rustling in the undergrowth! A quick delve produced a newly-emerged Sawyer Beetle - Britain's largest longhorn beetle.

Strolling along the canal at Loxwood, I finally caught up with a fly which had eluded me. The male Tachinid fly Phasia hemiptera. The shape and colouration of the wings is just amazing! I searched some of the Figwort plants and soon found the Figwort Weevil.
