Fantastic work at the WWT Caerlaverock biolbitz. Sorry SWSEIC couldn't be there, looks like we missed a fantastic day

Sounds like one of the recorders at today's @WWTCaerlaverock bioblitz has found a potential first for Scotland! Saucer Bug - Ilyocoris cimicoides. Sorry SWSEIC can't be there today to help. #WeWantWildlife @ChrisGPackham @BuglifeScotland
