This ugly critter, which is surely the larvae of a Bloody-nosed Beetle. I found this at Friston Forest today crawling around in the grass in exactly the same place I saw the adults a couple of years ago. Other highlights today included the impressive staph and beetle tick Othius punctulatus (species 3870) and two Adders. I also saw my first Grizzled and Dingy Skippers of the year. This is gonna be a short one today as I have an early start tomorrow and I'm not used to them this year, I always find it harder to get up early when I have fewer bird surveys to do, must be the lack of routine.
