More accurately a Damsel but that doesn't have the same impact as a headline - Oh, I don't know perhaps it does! Any way this Large Red Damselfly spotted during a butterfly transect survey. It seemed to be having trouble flying but perhaps not surprising when you see the size of its lunch it had just caught!
I also carried out my monthly Battle Farm bird survey early morning. 2489 birds of 34 species, the highlights being a "glowing" Yellow Wagtail on the sewage beds and a record 12 Stock Doves but the rest was a little disappointing with no Swifts or House Martins and only a single Whitethroat.
