What was it?
we visited Haddon hall yesterday ( yearly pilgrimage to drool at roses, incidentally if anyone knows where I can get some hazel bean sticks short of nipping round to nick some from months garden please tell me!) we were sitting by the pond& saw a few times much too quickly to get a picture, what looked like either a very large beetle or a tiny turtle diving down into the water! My 7year old spotted it& was entranced ( she is a water fairy) know it's not much to go on but does anyone have an idea what it could have been? It was around 2inches long& an inch wide thank you in advance x
