    We are still collating all the records, but if I was asked to guess what was the most common species I'd probably have to vote for the European Chinchbug, Ischnodemus sabuleti. There were uncountable swarms of the 2.8mm nymphs of this common wetland bug in the grass along the River Soar, but you'd never know they were there unless you delve in the tussocks.
