Carabus glabratus - Smooth Ground Beetle
Flicking through last year's photos I found this one of a beetle I hadn't identified, but have now! It's Carabus glabratus, which I think means Smooth Ground Beetle. It's very common. Its wings are fused together so it can't fly, but I was reading that apparently some ground beetles within the same species can fly whilst others can't! Interesting.
