WHILE it is intriguing to imagine Mr Woollard as a modern day Lytton Strachey trying to interpose his own body between 1,500 different species of insects and the terrified inhabitants of Burwell, I for one rather welcome the dragonflies, moths, butterflies, bees and beetles massing to sweep down on us followed, as they inevitably will be, by birds and (horror of horrors) bats.
