Confirmation of a New Record for the Country Park.

Spurred on by the tantalising glimpse of a potential Blue Shieldbug in the old quarry on Wednesday, a return visit was made today with the intention of trying to find it again. Surprisingly the bug was found, this time it was deep within a clump of Wood Sage next to the seasonal pond. The view was better this time, albeit brief since they are fast-moving insects, and it was definitely a Blue Shieldbug. This is a notable first for the Country Park.
