Oil Beetles in the Bovey Valley

by Matt Parkins

While preparing for hazel hurdle making this weekend I found I was accompanied by two oil beetles, shining in the sun. Sam and Barry were there too, setting up the charcoal making activities – see the “Charcoal Weekend at Bovey Valley” blog below. It’s going to be fun!
