Summer Chafer

Summer Chafer, Amphimallon solstitiale, Old Hunstanton, 5th July 2016

At least 50 were circling above a veteran oak at the bottom of Old Hunstanton churchyard at dusk on 5th July. This is the first record of the species on the patch since 10th July 1926 - though doubtless they've been here all along !

This one was photographed on 4th July 2016 at Earlham Park, Norwich.
