However I did get a botanical tick, and a very unlikely one at that. What the hell is a Broad Bean plant doing growing out of the water-side vegetation at Watermead CP South!
The few inverts I did find were not really suitable for photography. I had a very half-arsed attempt at a couple.
I had more fun poking about in a bracket fungi for 10 minutes the previous day whilst walking around the Cat Hill Wood Several beetles, all new to me although only two identified at present.
Orchesia undulata - jumps around like mad, makes a click beetle look static
Rhizophagus dispar - a typical and a darker individual
A Cryptophagus sp. and a couple of Cis spp. Probably.
