BRECKLAND: A Lynford wander

 Early August 2020

We went for a family walk around Lynford Arboretum, which was pleasant if not wildlife-filled. A Black Snail Beetle (Silpha atrata) crossed the path in front of us, whilst I noticed an area of Nettle-leaved Bellflower, which appears to be a new species for me. Near the lake I spotted what I assume is quite a distinctive looking Cranefly, but unfortunately in the absence of a field guide I've not managed to identify it (the most usful guide to craneflies is Shropshire Craneflies, but that is mostly set out as a key so doesn't have pictures of all of the species).
