Rare beetle discovery

Home // News // Rare beetle discovery

The PTES orchard team headed to Buckinghamshire last week following a hunch that noble chafer (Gnorimus nobilis) could be present at an orchard for which they had been asked for management advice; and they were right.

This exciting discovery was at a large 80 or 90 year old orchard at Cheddington, a couple of miles from a 2011 noble chafer find. The site proved to host many old trees containing the flagship green beetle making this now the third noble chafer site in Bucks. With our help the site will now be managed for wildlife and the community.
