In between the showers today, I made a dash out thinking that it was about time I looked on the beech trees for one of the Highland Biological Recording Group’s target species, the Beech Leaf-Mining Weevil (Orchestes fagi).  No problem:

Also munching the beech leaves, was this fellow which various folks have kindly told me is the larva of the Mottled Umber (Erannis defoliaria):

Some alders had alder gall mite (Eriophyes laevis):
