The car was packed about 7:55 and I walked for breakfast prompt at 8 and by about 9:15 I was asking if there was any chance of an early ferry (mine was the 11:15). I have to say the Wightlink staff are very obliging and I was told no problem go to the end of lane 3. There seemed to be a lot going on so I thought I had no chance but I was on a ferry about 9:50.
After disembarking (!) I heading to Hatchlands Ponds
I was looking for dragonflies and damsels. I saw a large red and dlue tailed damsel and there was a chaser but I was unable to get a picture. Not sure what the chaser was, it was flitting about and I couldn't get a fix.
Still got the duck chicks and the foal above.
Off to Burley for lunch.
As I was eating my lunch this pair wandered into view.
I then headed to Eyeworth pond CONVINCED there would be dragons. This little chap was seen on the way.
Were there dragons? were there heck!!
