The beetles were good too - no lifers but three that I hadn't recorded here before (one or two probably only because I haven't been looking at them closely enough, though I think I might have picked up on the ladybird in previous years if I'd seen one) - a Glow-worm Lampyris noctiluca, the click beetle Melanotus villosus and a 10-spot Ladybird. There was also a Harleqin Ladybird.
