Luckett wildlife survey

23rd May

A visit to Luckett in S.E Cornwall to help with a survey of the old mining sites in the area with the Launceston wildlife group, I was listing birds but managed a few photographs of some of the insect life found.
Cardinal Beetle (Pyrochroa serraticornis)

Wasp Beetle (Clytus arietis) One of many harmless insects that imitates a more dangerous one to protect itself .

Lobster Moth. (Stauropus fagi )One of the many Moths caught in a Moth Trap.

Poplar Hawk Moth (Laothoe populi )

 A Cricket nymph.
Enjoyable day.
