In the Black

Week 36 started slowly with a  few Butterflies still hanging on at work namely Speckled Wood, Large White and Small Copper. At home we have started to get a few Peacocks but no Red Admiral has yet. I had Wednesday afternoon off work and headed up on to the moors at Langsett to try and find the rerported Black Redstart which had been there a few days near the old farm buildings, after about an hour I caught sight of the bird, a patch first good start, I then headed off to do a little Dragonfly hunting around the Langset area Common Hawker (2), Emerald Damselfly, Blue Tailed Damselfly and a new find Black Darter
