Dragonflies on the menu today

 Willow Emerald Damselfly I presume- three along the permitted footpath along the Northern Lake. I had a tip off from Gordon Hay that they were out in force at Holmethorpe and presumably would be at the farmlands too. Graham Spinks found the first one for the farmlands last year but these three represent the first sighting since and a Beddington lifer for me- 30 years in the game man and boy and still seeing new things most times I go out - Cheers Gordon! 
 Migrant Hawker- about 15-20 across the site today 
 Common Darter- a few of these around too. 

Spent the rest of the afternoon watching this Hobby eating the above:
