On Monday I met Mark at Burton Mill Pond again for more work with the Golden-bloomed Grey Longhorn Beetle. I was particularly pleased to find a Variable Damselfly which is a new species for me. In addition the following lakeside creatures were seen:
Variable Damselfly, Coenagrion pulchellum
Alder sawfly, Eriocampa ovata
Amber Snail, Succinea putris
Black Snipefly, Chrysopilus cristatus

Blue-tailed Damselfly, immature female Ischnura elegans 'violacea'
Red-Eyed Damselfly, teneral male, Erythromma najas
Long-horn Caddisfly, Mystacides longicornis
Common Stretch Spider, Tetragnatha extensa
Golden-bloomed Grey Longhorn Beetle, Agapanthia villosoviridescens

Greater Pond-sedge, Carex riparia
Greater Tussock-Sedge, Carex paniculata
Heather Shieldbug, Rhacognathus punctatus predating Reed beetle, Plateumaris affinis
I am waiting for confirmation of the Heather Shieldbug id
