Whittle Dene Wagtails

Quite briefly - there were none. Last year at this time produced Yellow and Pied but this afternoon not one of any kind. Only the 'Tern on the buoy', a pair of Great Crested Grebes and a Buzzard over. The lack of birds was offset by the dense clouds of midges.
However the bankside on the way to the hide was colourful as was this fly on the hide step

Lovely wildflowers, hey I noticed on the Yorkshire Dragonfly Society website that Damsels have been spotted in Yorkshire. Maybe just a week or two before they emerge in your neck of the woods? Do you have an equivalent Dragonfly society up in the North East?

I've been watching Yorks. Dragonfly Soc. but dont have the equivalent here. There has been some sightings in the Scottish Highlands so fingers crossed.
