First of the year

Ok, I'm a bit late with this post given it relates to last Sunday afternoon 11 April -I do have other things to do you know! However, a walk around Lasgarn Wood looking for pied flycatcher and redstart drew a blank but it was just warm enough for some nice invert activity. On offer were a number peacock and small tortoiseshell butterfly, a Streamer moth, a good show of bee fly (Bombylius major) and the nice little ground beetle Asaphidion flavipes. Pick of the bunch however, was the first orthoptera of the year in the form a large population of slender ground hopper (Tetrix subulata).
