But not for me! I swept this 13-spot Ladybird Hippodamia tredecimpunctata on Saturday from a site near the Pevensey Levels. It's quite a scarce species and one I've never seen before. In fact, I saw quite a few scarce species including the fly Atylotus rusticus and the bee Eucera longicornis. I also saw this reed beetle, the nationally scarce Donacia clavipes with red legs. Nice to see Seth too, even though it was short notice and I was having quite a severe reaction to grass pollen and could barely speak!
