Did I say I wasn't going to bang on about bugs? Ten years ago I buried a load of wood in the garden, seven years ago I saw a female Stag Beetle laying eggs on it... And now they're emerging... Took 10 years, but now I have my own Stag Beetle colony!
Perhaps I'm getting old & lazy but now I'm not going looking for them, I just sit in the garden (drinking beer) waiting for them to emerge! And my cat will spot them if I don't!! Just males at the moment, but when the girls emerge I'm hoping to film a stag fight.
There are at least six males (hopefully more), all patrolling the same small area - pretty sure that's where the females will emerge - then it'll probably all kick off! While I'm waiting here's a couple of short videos - climbing & walking, not fighting (yet).
