Tracks in the sand - Braunton Burrows

Interesting to read up on Tiger Beetles being some of the fastest insects on the planet. There is also a Dune Tiger Beetle which is closely related to the Northern Dune Tiger Beetle, the subtle difference being the width of the banding on the wing cases.

Since I find it far too hot for comfort to enter Braunton Burrows after 09:00 at the moment, I have yet to see this fascinating high speed bug.

Martin - Have you been able to see one on Northam Burrows? I assume it is too hot for comfort over on your side of the estuary as well.
