Odonata tick!

A trip down to the Brecks began with a long walk around Thompson Common (We took the Pingo Trail by mistake, adding an unnecessary 4 miles to our stroll!) Once we were in the right place the Sun conveniently chose to shine and we soon found a number of Scarce Emerald Damsels, including a copulating pair. That takes me to 28 species, all in Norfolk!

I've inserted little close ups of the two most critical i/d points in case anyone out there fancies a bash! Other Dragons included Emperor, Southern Hawker, Four-spot and lots of newly-emerged Common Darters. We also found a lovely little family group of Blackcaps: aaaaah!
