All about the Odonata!

A sunny lunchtime walk around the Fen was surprisingly productive, given the vast numbers of strollers.... Migrant, Southern & Brown Hawkers were everywhere, as were Emerald Damselflies. Sadly, half a dozen people showed me photo's of 'Willow Emeralds' that were, in fact, the more abundant species. Scarce Chaser was a nice surprise at the Sluice....

Loads of Butterflies too: some flower-heads just dripped with Tortoiseshells and Peacocks, and there were a few Common Blues, Red Admirals and Painted Ladies to add variety!

Bonus bird was a Bittern that took me by surprise along Lackford Run!
