Thursday 15th

The first calm and sunny day for a while meant the last dregs of the flight season could be mopped up and nine Common Darters were logged.

Monday 5th

Walking around New Downs New Pool failed to turn up any late Ruddy Darters but at least six Common Darters were present.

Friday 2nd

A nice warm afternoon counting Common Darters proved worthwhile with 62 recorded on the Estate. An astonishingly high count for so late in the season.
