First stag beetle observation for 2023 in Kreis-Cochem Zell!

First stag beetle sighted in the district of Cochem-Zell! On 8 May at 12:00 noon, the first stag beetle report from the district of Cochem-Zell was received by the stag beetle search in Alf. Rainer Vogt from Lütz discovered a male while working in his garden, which means that the season is now open in the district. The first stag beetles have been on the move in Frankenland since 20 April, then came the Palatinate, the Nahe and now the Moselle. “All quite early, but normal in terms of the sequence of events. Things really get going anyway when the ladies find their way to the surface, then they fly and get married,” says Markus Rink of the stag beetle search. The imposing animals can then be observed more often. Then Rainer Vogt will also find out whether he has perhaps rented out a flat in his garden to stag beetles.
