Here are some superb photos from C.Rayz flickr stream. Crystal does so much natural history she has very little time to post on wildhastings so I thought I would catch you all up with some of the wildlife she has recorded recently.
Golden-ringed dragonfly is very rarely recorded in Hastings. An excellent find.
Purple hairstreaks are probably widespread and common throughout Hastings but are hard to track down. Seems to be a good year for them with other records coming from Summerfields Wood Nature Reserve.
Scarlet tiger a new species for Hastings.
Sitticus pubescens (8-spot Jumping Spider). A jumping spider found in similar habitat to the more familiar zebra jumping Spider Salticus scenicus, but a lot more scarce.
