Darters and skimmers
Saturday 6th July 2013. Very warm, sunny and dry with a light n/e breeze. Another Saturday morning at work was frustrating with a lovely sunny day outside, but home by 2pm, changed and fed and ready for a walk. Before leaving home I had a quick look at the new pond and now there were Common Blue Damselflies as well as Large Red, which was nice. Next I met Tim near Reculver and we took a walk to look for the Red-veined Darter(s) seen the last few days. There were loads of Black-tailed Skimmers, several Emperor Dragonflies, a few Common Darters, many Blue-tailed, an Azure and hundreds of Common Blue Damselflies and of course the Red-veined Darter.
