    My dad pointed to something on the floor, said when he went for a walk this morning round the lanes there were quite a few of these flying around, but this one in our garden has a damaged wing so cant fly :(


    But after looking through books and net im stuck....i've got 2/3 ideas to what it could be, but nothings really matching up

    It does have a black edge to its wing, thats not an extra leg! haha


    I'd post this in the insect forum but its really quiet down there! haha
