Now is the time to dig out the macro lens, extension tubes etc, and get out and start recording and photographing the invertebrates of Gwent. Any patch of rank vegetation, pond or river margin will harbour hidden treasures. Gwent is so under recorded its embarrassing.
A recent visit to Llantarnam Ponds produced the beetle Oedemera nobilis and the reed beetle Donacia vulgaris. Also a male and female beautiful demoiselle damselfly, and also large red and azure damselfies. Keep looking!
