With a brief spell of sunshine this afternoon which didn't last that long, I was tempted out to a site near Reculver to see if any dragonflies were still on the wing. On arrival I spent about 30 minutes walking around where I found 2 Migrant Hawker resting up. I managed a few shots which required some in camera flash but the results were still quite pleasing, despite the 'busy' background. It wasn't really that warm so I wasn't surprised to see much more but I hope there still might be a few Common Darter and the odd Willow Emerald Damselfly lurking around. There is currently quite a bit of soil excavation taking place on site but hopefully having spoke to a few people there, the water will be left alone for the wildlife. Maybe if the weather is alright over the weekend, I can return when I have more time to see whats about.
