Red-veined Darter & Keeled Skimmer!

A sixty-mile round trip to see two new Dragons.... Was it worth it? You bet! The Red-veined Darters took a bit of finding at Kelling Quags, but I eventually found four sunning themselves on the path. A long-hoped for species - to see (and photograph!) four individuals this well was just terrific!

A brief coffee stop at Cley added a flock of twelve or so mobile Spoonbills to the list, but instead of chasing them around the reserve I decided to have a try for Keeled Skimmer at Holt Lowes. A really enjoyable walk produced not only the hoped-for Dragon shots, but also four Silver-washed Fritillaries and a White Admiral!
