A visit to North’s Seat proved a delight after recent conservation works by the Volunteers Conservation Group. The improved environment they had created enabled easy appreciation of the smaller wildlife that this site has in abundance. A Hawthorn Leaf Beetle (upper picure) and a 10-spot Ladybird, plus four different species of Weevil were all found in a short time within this site. Identification of weevils isn’t easy and two of the species have yet to be confirmed, but there were plenty of Gorse Weevils and Pea Weevils. One of the remaining two is thought to be Anthonomus pedicularius (lower picture, no common name).
