Next day I had a quick scan over the marshes at Burnham Norton in my lunch break. Not much doing there except my first Common Blue of the year so I moved on to Barrow Common. A short walk through the wood on the southern side produced this fantastic beastie. Wasn't sure what it was at first, first impression was a beetle but when I saw it more closely I figured it was some kind of shieldbug or something. Further inspection of the photos reveals that I was right with my first impression, and it proves to be a beetle called Oiceoptoma thoracicum.

This Snail seems to be a Kentish Snail Monacha cantiana if I'm not mistaken...
