Thistle Bell, beetles and larvae at Arundel

Thistle Bell, Epiblema scutulana

On Wednesday we visited Arundel WWT and enjoyed a walk around the hides. The Canada and Greylag goslings appreciated Sue's gift of seed and I found various beetles and a Thistle Bell moth.
14-spot Ladybirds mating, Propylea 14-punctata

Black-margined Loosestrife Beetle, Neogalerucella calmariensis
Common Nettle-tap, Anthophila fabriciana
Common Sweep larva, Psyche casta
This case bearing moth is also called a bagworm. There is a fascinating account here:
Harlequin Ladybird, Harmonia axyridis
Hawthorn, Crataegus monogyna
Lapwings, Vanellus vanelluss Arundel WWT
Leaf beetle, Chrysolina brunsvicensis
this tiny (3mm) larva is spinning a home
id needed!
Spindle Ermine moth larvae, Yponomeuta cagnagella

Strawberry Leaf Beetle, Galerucella tenella
