Golden

Never seen one of these...what a fantastic beast! Presumably a very fresh individual...the golden hairs wear off with time.

good record

This is quite a scarce species, with only a handful of previous records from the Lake District as far as I know (see NBN map above). Thanks for reporting it here.
