An enormous predatory fly - the largest in the country - has been found at a National Trust farm in Devon.
The hornet robberfly is harmless to humans, but it's a "fearsome predator" of grasshoppers, and its larvae feed on the beetle grubs in cow dung.
Once common across southern England, its numbers have fallen dramatically due to losing its habitat - and this is the first time it has been seen on the East Soar farm near Bolt Head in 15 years.
"We were both surprised and delighted to find this spectacular fly, Britain's largest, on National Trust land near Bolt Head."
"A lot of work has been carried out by the Trust and our tenants over the last 4 years to improve the condition of the coastal area for the benefit of a wide range of wildlife. We are really pleased to see discoveries like the hornet robberfly which would not survive without the right grazing conditions."
A pupil from Truro High School for Girls got the surprise of her life when her letter to the Children’s Laureate resulted in a series of hand drawn cartoons.
10-year-old Molly Adam sent an email to her favourite author, Chris Riddell, who created characters like Goth Girl and Ottoline, as part of a class project to contact well-known writers.
She also asked him some questions and was amazed by the responses - drawn as a series of charming cartoons.
The whole school was touched by the popular author's response and says it would love him to visit.
A woman from Devon is in the Guinness Book of World Records with her collection of 2,000 garden gnomes.
They're gnomes-of-action - motorbiking, helicopter-flying, tree-climbing - and Ann Atkin from Bradworthy says people come from all over the world to see them.
Today our own Kate Haskell was one of them - and tried to keep her gnome puns under control.
And if you want to see the forecast Kate mentions just take a look at our weather updates page.
A Newton Abbot bride got an unusual lift to her wedding reception after saying "I do" ... transported by a 40-ton Leibherr crane.
Robyn Harrison's new husband Richard Sheehan helps run the family crane hire business, so it seemed like the obvious choice.
A North Devon group famous for building enormous bonfires with novelty scenes and figures will be setting fire to their latest creation tonight.

Around 20,000 people are expected, while raising thousands for charity.
A bottle that was washed up in Germany containing a message has been returned to Plymouth - more than a hundred years after it was dropped into the sea. It had been dropped into the North Sea between 1904 and 1906 and was recently washed up on a beach at Amrum.
The bottle was one of a thousand being used to study currents in the North Sea. A shilling was promised to anyone who returned a bottle to Plymouth's Marine Biological Association. The MBA has honoured its promise, and has sent the couple who found the bottle one shilling.
A 10 year old busker from St Ives has raised over £50,000 for a local charity.
Madison Glinksy has been playing her violin in the streets of Cornwall since April 2014.
She set a target of raising £50,000 for the Children's Hospice South West after hearing about the work the charity does for life limited children.
But Madison has now gone over her target and has handing over a cheque for £52,006 to the charity today.
I feel overwhelmed and really happy that I've finally reached my target. I've had to do lots and lots of busking but it's gone by really quickly because I've enjoyed every single moment of it. My mum wants me to rest now but I want to keep fundraising.
Its overwhelming to think that one young lady is so inspired by the needs of other children, I can't believe what she's done in such a short space of time.
