A Little Habitat

Saturday, September 8th 2018

Walking onto the middle moor, the area between the fence and the ditch was beginning to show signs that fungi were developing.  In the ditch some small willow shrubs needed a closer examination..  We were amazed at the finds on them.  Sawfly larvae feeding on a willow leaf, took up their defensive positions.

On another stem was a crab spider.  On closer inspection we realised that we were interrupting his lunch!

Well camouflaged, was a Common Shield Bug
