22nd June 2017

Sexton or burying beetles: There are at  least 3 million beetle species in the world. One in four of every creature on the earth is a beetle and most do good, not harm. Their success is thought to be due to the fact that beetle species virtually never become extinct! Their hardened fore-wings acting like body armour, red beetles warn predators they are toxic whether they are or not! The Sexton Beetle or burying beetle actually buries corpses of small birds and rodents, joining with others to dig out the earth around and under the corpses, before laying their eggs. The bodies become food for their larvae! Conditions: Mercifully, cooler weather after a dry, hot week, including the highest June temperature for decades. Temperature: Max 23- Min 12 c.
