Gorse Shield Bug

Yesterday, having absent-mindedly turned up half an hour early for the tree walk event in Hastings Country Park NR,  I decided to look around the edges of the picnic site car park-somewhere I wouldn’t normally visit. The weather, as usual, was pretty unhelpful-no sun, windy, but I was pleased to see, sitting on a windswept nettle, a Gorse Shield bug. This is known from the Country Park and is quite common, but I’ve not seen it before- it was duly admired by the other participants on the walk and released.
