can anyone help me identify the attached? i saw it at Poole Park, Dorset. it was very still in amongst conifers, by the waters edge (sea water)
it was around an inch and a half long.
many thanks, samantha
This looks to me like Cimbex luteus the Giant Sawfly. It's quite harmless and rare, I think there is a national reporting scheme for them but I don't have the address off hand.
