How interesting that you're focusing on London. My family have recently moved to Sunbury and on two separate visits I have spotted a stag beetle, crawling cross the pavement. The first time I have seen one for decades. My family live opposite a small piece of neglected woodland, prime stag beetle country! I picked them up and carefully moved them across the road to the woodland so they weren't stepped on. I hope that was OK.
