Keep an eye out

You might be lucky enough to see the Bee if the weather stays mild.

Minotaur Beetle

Of the species mentioned, I think Minotaur Beetle is the only one which makes conspicuous burrows with heaps of sand outside (most other dung-beetles burrow more discretely) and is active in November. They are even more active at night, and I've seen them out and about at -6C.
