Whilst camping the other day I had an hour or so where I took a wander around while the kids were pond dipping. Migrant Hawkers were everywhere with some perching up in the reeds, not the greatest background colour at all but a nice chance to photograph this species again.
Along the dykes were a few Common Darter which allowed a few shots to be taken and a Brown Hawker was busily patrolling up and down the ditches and unbelievably come to rest the other side of a ditch from me.

Despite the water in the way and the distance, it was just nice to see a perched Brown Hawker. This superb place has a lot to offer for dragonflies and hopefully I can return later in the year to take a few more larvae shots.
