Fairburn Ings RSPB

Today since the weather was good we decided on a visit to Fairburn Ings RSPB near Castlefird for some Butterflies and Dragonflies and we were not dissapointed, I went mainly to capture Four Spotted Chasers on film, see below. other Odanatas about were Azure Damselflies, Common Blue Damselflies and Blue Tailed Damselflies. On the other hand there wasn’t many butterflies about all we got was a Small Skipper. Whilst we were there we got news of a Great White Egret around the moat area of Fairburn, we had to go and find it  did become a welcome addition to the Yorkshire list after a bit of chasing, other birds noted Swift, Blackcap, Green Sandpiper, Grey Heron, Redshank
