Strandline Glow-worm at Whiteford

Chris’s Lapland Bunting reminded me that on 2nd October Sand and myself were searching unsuccessfully for this species in exactly the same spot where Chris found his today. Although we failed to see any interesting birds that day we did find this handsome Glow-worm larva under a log on the strandline. Note its extruded head and jaws, effective for killing and eating its snail prey.
