Ponds Visit

Down again to the local Ponds and once again to look for Odonata species. Making my way thru to the ponds I picked up on a few Large Red Damselflies on the brambles along with a good amount of Azure Damaselflies. Looking around the ponds I couldn’t pick up on any larger species, I was hoping for a couple of Chaser species.

I sat around the larger pond looking and waiting when all of a sudden two Four Spotted Chasers came into view but alas never settling. I made my way back stopping off at one of the smaller ponds and alas there were two Four Spotted Chaser, one obviously ovipositing. I settled in and waited for them to settle and perch up on the reeds before taking any pictures.

Other highlights were Chiffchaff, Whitethroat and a good group of House Martin. Butterflies about were Common Blue and Small Heath
