A weekend around Leeds

Last weekend was spent around the Leeds area where we visited Brockadale NR, Fairburn Ings and Golden Acre Park. With a variety of habitats we encountered a variety of wildlife, a few of which are listed below
There were at least eight Brimstone on the wing in one area including this female

and my first sighting this year of a Common Blue

there were several moths which are a bit of a mystery to me

maybe a Chimney Sweeper?

a few Banded Damoiselle

a few sightings of urban foxes. There were 6 cubs in this family

and a troupe of balancing damselfly

The Damsels are brill when they are stacked in numbers........a bit like a circus act.
