My other option for this blogpost title would have been “ay-up cock” or any equivalent. But as you can see I have chosen the above. If for no other reason than to paraphrase the following intercourse.
“Oh, Vic – I’ve fallen”
“Oh, no – are you alright?”
“I think so, just some mild chafing”
Your internal monologue may be working around a phrase resembling “what on God’s earth is the man going on about now?”
Fair enough I say – best you have a look at this picture of a bug what I saw in the patch yesterday.
It is, according to my best estimate a Cockchafer Melolontha melolontha. And according to my (unreliable) bug book it should have stopped flying around a couple of weeks ago.
Nevertheless, fly it does. A bit.
Another tick on the pathetically small panpatchtickon.
