A Saturday afternoon

I had arranged for Trish to show me Esher common and to see some dragonflies (we made need to replan the agenda as the weather looks dodgy!!) so I went out with Dad today.

We were unoriginal and went to Bury St Edmunds and Clare Country Park. The weather was dubious first thing but turned rather pleasant as we arrived at Clare.

Lots of Banded Demoiselle.

Just above the ruins of the old priory look what I found sitting on the wires, two Spotted Flycatchers! Now THAT I didn't expect to see.

Sorry I haven't commented for a while, I've been away (no not with the fairies!). Really glad you saw the flycatchers, ours have just hatched out two young (second brood I think) in our camera nest box. Really exciting to watch them. Great pictures of the damsels... Jane
