Today's Dorset Walk was to Puddletown Forest, where we found this busy little chap.
While we're on the subject of beetles here is a green tiger beetle I filmed in Shropshire last summer.
This vicious little predator can be seen here "attacking" an already dead centipede.
Just after this it catches and eats a live ant, but you need to look very close to see this.
Neither of these dramas were noticed at the time of filming!
