From daily The Morning Star in Britain:

A Hard Day’s Night for beetles

Wednesday 14 March 2012

Britain’s “Fab Four” oil beetle species have been having a hard day’s night.

Wildlife charity Buglife announced on Wednesday that numbers of black, violet, rugged and short-necked oil beetles are diving like a yellow submarine.

The beetles’ habitats have been blighted by changes to the countryside. Naturalists are calling for people to help survey numbers.

So search the long and winding roads and strawberry fields for signs of the bugs and get involved in the national oil beetle hunt at www.buglife.org.uk
