Odds and ends at Ormesby, but no Lesser Emperor

I've managed to connect with Lesser Emperor three or four years in a row, and, since I had an hour spare, I thought I'd have a look at the regular spots at Ormesby and Filby Broads. Despite a diligent search I wasn't fortunate on this occasion, but there was still lots to see: Kingfisher, Hobby, Cuckoo, Garden Warbler and Common Tern were the bird highlights.

Lots of damselflies: the most abundant species were Blue-tailed (including quite a few rufescens) and Red-eyed. Plenty of Hairies and Four-spots. as well as a curious wasp of some sort that, when I first saw if from a distance, I hoped might be a clearwing! The small fish looks like a young Chub: didn't know they were to be found in the Trinity Broads...
