Wandering out the back of the house at dusk to shut up the back door on this very warm evening, I saw a large beetle fly past the far end of our very small garden. I went out to have a look and saw several of them, stag beetles, flying around. Our adolescent offspring also came out to have a look, and we stayed there watching them fly around until it got too dark to see. Again, 20 years in this house, and we have never seen stag beetles in our air-space – although they are common up on nearby Windmill Hill, and I did discover one in the road out the front of the house last year.
