On our way back from Petra's run today we found this stag beetle at about 5 o'clock, crawling along the footpath that connects Southdown Terrace to Kings Barn Lane. We helped it into the tree cover by the bypass.
I hope she (it's female!) lays lots of eggs. This beetle is classed as a nationally endangered species so they need all the help we can give.
Leave a pile of rotting wood somewhere please.

Where do I Walk?
Mainly in a fairly compact area on the north-east side of Steyning in West Sussex, UK.
