Stag Beetle


  1. We used to have a lot of stag beetles about - but sadly haven't seen one for years now

  2. I haven't seen one here (St Margaret's), the last one I saw was 15 years ago at Foots Cray Meadows.

  3. We still get them every year here in Boughton, in the garden and in the village street. I've seen 4 in the garden so far this year.
