very large ground beetle active across the grass during the day
No interactions present.
Thanks for this very valuable record. One of the best known recent sites for Carabus monilis is at Thornborough so to find it so close by is great.
Good to know. However my wife asked if there was any chocolate as a reward for holding the beetle while I photographed it, it has rather large jaws!
