I spent a few hours at BBOWT'S Sydlings copse nature reserve today mainly to concentrate on getting a few shots of the Green tiger beetle that occurs here. Not the easiest of subjects to photograph in warm sunny weather but with a little patience I managed a few shots. One individual was seen struggling with prey which I think was a young instar Dock bug. While the beetle was tackling it, it had the least bit of interest in me photographing it.
A few Early purple orchids were seen just coming into flower and there were still a few bits of Toothwort around.
