Early Thursday afternoon, and it was really warm, had me wandering up to Banks Pond after a stroll back along the bumpy road.
I was surprised at the number of dragonflies and damsels still active.
Loads of Common Darters and a few Hawkers, but I was pleased to spot a couple of Black Darters also -
The Damselfly were not giving up just yet
although the wings were starting to fray
and on a small patch of Birds-foot trefoil were eight or nine Common Blue
I had spotted a couple of these Southern Hawkers down at the bumpy road, which now has a great harvest of Hawthorn berries waiting for the migrants to appear
