I have had a quiet morning. I found a beetle but it wasn’t very big and it insisted on lying on it’s back even when I had given it half an hour to warm up after a very cool, damp night.
I suspect this is Pterostichus madidus. I thought at first it was a Click beetle but if they end up on their backs they jump in the air. I don’t know what it has stuck on it’s foot; just a bit of soil I think. It doesn’t look very well, though it was waving it’s legs and antenna around and snapping it’s jaws. I have put it back under the log.
Enjoy your week.
