Carabus Nitens. I spent most days looking at the ground in the hope of finding this jewel of a ground beetle again and eventually I saw one. 

I had just parked up to watch Redpolls when an immature Goshawk almost flew into my open car window, banking at the last second just 2 meters away. Camera wasn't set up for the speed of it all but I was left reliving the moment for hours afterwards. I have to admit that a little bit of wee came out.
