Upton Fen - and one that got away!

An early start at Upton Fen with Norman & Brian was pleasantly productive, with good views of the usual odonata (hundreds of Brown Hawkers, a few Emperors and Southerns) as well as good numbers of freshly-emerged Migrant Hawkers.

A stroll along the raised wall produced Wall Brown and a very tatty Painted Lady, as well as a delightful adult Crane.

Walking back to the carpark, we noticed a very large, very dark dragonfly with bright yellow rings all the along its body. Sadly, it didn't settle, whizzing past and away at high speed....
