Other British Wildlife
This ever-expanding section generally includes all the 'odds and ends' I see when I'm out and about finding other things!
Britain has 11 species of grasshopper and 11 bush-crickets. While some are very common and widespread, others are highly localised creatutes found only in specific habitats.
There are almost 4000 species of beetle (Coleoptera) found in Britain. Some are tiny, whilst other are more impressive, culminating in the spectacular Stag Beetle, now sadly threatened by habitat loss and changes in woodland management.
This section has a hotch-potch of insect photos from all sorts of places. Hopefully I'll be getting more photos, as well as improving on some of the ones already here!
Britain has a diverse arachnid fauna, with nearly 650 spider species, 22 harvestmen and almost 30 pseudoscorpions. In southern England, true scorpions have become naturalised around ports, after stowing away on incoming ships.
A mixture of other creatures that haven't been granted the privilege of their own section yet!
