Tree Creeper

We have a new record for the reserve of a tree creeper.  Photos and sighting by recording co-ordinator Rose Battye.







Also, an ID (Adrian Chalkley) of more pondlife (photo by Jools):






This is an early instar (i.e. young) larva of a lesser diving beetle. Probably one of the Ilybius species, so not a great diving beetle just one of dozens of smaller swimming diving beetles. Most larvae can only be identified to family level.
