I now find myself furloughed for a three week stint, thank you Covid-19. Restrictions continue to slowly ease but with no news of restrictions for the vulnerable, life carries on in a difficult format.
Sun was shining, vitamin D was calling and so was my well being, so a local walk where I knew I wouldn’t come across anyone.
My first stop was near a cluster of daisies were I saw my first Meadow Brown of the year along with Large Skipper, a seven spot ladybird larvae was a nice find also. Moving on I came across an area of bramble where I found more Meadow Brown and Large Skipper with as very brief view of a Common Blue.
Walking thru the wood I came across a Large Red Damselfly before I finally reached my target area where I was hoping for larger dragonflies.
On approaching the first pond I could see a couple of large dragonflies on settling in I found a singles of Emperor and a Male Broad Bodied Chaser.
Looking around the other ponds I came across more Emperors, Broad Bodied Chaser and also a single and all but brief view of a Four Spotted Chaser which was seen off by an Emperor
