Small larva observed underneath piece of wood board within grassland area, near Changing Rooms. Individual had a red head, appears to be covered in fine hairs and has lighter coloured ‘dashes along abdomen (see Photos 3-5). This observation looks similar to a picture of Soldier beetle larvae (Cantharidae) on a very useful resource which I have added in Comments section. 10 pence size reference so would estimate length at approx. 7mm (Photo 7). There are possibly other likely candidates so would welcome advice.
