Walking around the east side we came upon a sun soaked glade at the edge of the lake. Dozens of Common Darter and 3-4 Migrant Hawkers soaking up the sun
After an extended wander we walked down to the old walled kitchen garden
We were confronted with a sight I had never dreamed possible in the North East. Wherever you looked there were 10-12 dragonflies on the wing. I'm guessing that the numbers were so high as a result of the preceding 7-8 days of fine weather. It was unbelievable to me having scratched around this area looking for dragonfly often with meagre and at times zero results.
More Migrant Hawkers on the south facing garden wall
