A bit of heat in yesterday afternoons sun brought out all the butterflies on the Carr including my first Comma of the year and a Silver ground carpet moth. Also many other flying insects including this you could hardly miss.
Not a true Cardinal beetle which has a black head but the red head means Pyrochroa serratinonis. It took a good few attempts before I managed to get it with the wing cases open as it flew short distances between stones.
