Lots of purring going on as well, and I counted at least five different individuals, no not cats!...Turtle Doves with one showing well.
Also saw a single spike of Bee Orchid, beautiful plant and thanks to the volunteer in the visitor centre for tipping me off.
Good numbers of Dragons and Damsels around the pond, I spent some time trying to photograph them, but still need to improve the art!
|Large Red Damselfly|
|I think this could be a Four-spotted Chaser exuvia, if you can ID it for sure please let me know|
Lots of other stuff seen around the reserve, including Cuckoo, Hobby, families of Blackcaps and long-tailed tits and a Bar-tailed Godwit feeding along the estuary. Also, plenty of biting mosquitoes, knew I shouldn't have worn shorts!
