Walking around the Estate in warm, but not necessarily sunny conditions, produced our first two Ruddy Darters of the year and four Black-tailed Skimmers.
A morning’s ramblings saw two Scarce Chasers and a Broad-bodied Chaser in the Haven.
Despite the rather grey skies our first Red-veined Darter of the year was spied in the Dragonfly Pond field whilst another Darter sp in the Whitehouse avoided detection.
Despite it progressively clouding over there were four Four-spotted Chasers on Worth. A Variable Damselfly in Middle Field was unusual.
Three Scarce Chasers on Worth this morning.
Three Four-spotted Chasers, seven Broad-bodied Chasers, and eight Black-tailed Skimmers were excellent counts on the Estate today.
The best day of the year so far with 11 species. Two Banded Demoiselles, eight Red-eyed Damselflies, four Emperors and two Hairy Dragonflies were of note on the Estate, with 14 Banded Demoiselles on Worth.
