This afternoon, I decided to park up on Barrs Lane and undertake my invert walk across the field and back along the Butts Lane set-aside.
The walk proved to be quite fruitful as I saw 2 Brown Argus and a Small Copper . Both species of butterfly were the first patch sightings for 2012.
Also of interest during the walk were a small number of Doc Bug (Coreus marginatus), a species that I have not noted before at Shenstone. Common Malachite Beetles were also present.
