My thanks to all who came to my talk at the Ringwood Travel Club last night.
It would have been rude to have driven through the New Forest yesterday and not stepped out into the sunny Forest itself, for a little wander and root about.
I found some interesting clues to direction, lots of the usual suspects and two new ones that I am looking forward to investigating further. I also came across this almost perfectly camouflaged insect. It was, the last time I looked, right in the centre of the photo. I have my theory, but I’m not certain what it is, so answers by email please.
