A Pond Visit

A long overdue visit to the local ponds, hoping for a few larger Dragonflies. Birds noted on arrival were Blackcap, Bullfinch, Swifts, Swallow, Willow Warblers, Whitethroat, and Woodpigeon. There was also a few butterflies on the wing Large White, Orange tip and Small Heath.

However with lots of looking I couldn’t find any Dragonflies on the wing, I found this to be a bit of a surprise especially with good numbers of 4 Spotted Chasers now being seen around the country. I did find a few Damselflies species, Azure Damselfly, Large Red Damselfly were out in good numbers and I also found a single male Common Blue Damselfly.
