Can't pass Clara Vale LNR without a quick whizz around. I thought it would be a 'nailed on' for a Dragonfly or two, but was wrong -again. However just past the pond we spotted a Jay panting in the bright sunshine.
There was an impresive display of orchids in the area around the pond
and loads of Azure Damsefly
a quick visit into the hide produced only Blue, Coal and Great Tit.
