Odonata central at Weybread GPs, 10 July 2019

A quick nip out to 'Kingfisher Pit' at Weybread after work yesterday was well worth the short stroll. The highlight was 2 Norfolk Hawkers, a site first for me and a good extra-limital record. Also around the margins and emergent vegetation were c4 Emperor Dragonflies, 2 Brown Hawkers, several Black-tailed Skimmers, 3 Ruddy Darters, and several each of Small Red-eyed and Red-eyed Damselflies. The numbers of the former are well down on the hundreds of a couple of years ago but the surface vegetation was removed and is only now starting to make a recovery. All of the blue damsels I looked at were Common Blue Damselflies.
Birdwise it was very quiet as expected but a family party of Reed Warblers showed nicely.
