Small China-mark, Ruby-tailed wasp and Lego

Ruby-tailed wasp, Chrysis species
On Monday 20th June I walked round the nature reserve in Mewsbrook Park and found several ladybird larvae and bugs and a Red-headed Cardinal Beetle. I have seen this beetle on most nature walks recently.
  On Tuesday we took Jackie to Arundel WWT and I saw my first Small China-mark moth on the reed-bed walk. A Ruby-tailed wasp flitted around on the wooden fencing outside the visitor centre, as Dave Fairlamb, centre manager, had described the previous evening at the supporter's club meeting. The Lego creatures were well done.
