Educational Damselfly! Winterton, 24 August 2019

Despite spending some while up at 'the' pool in Winterton North Dunes looking for Scarce Blue-tailed Damselfy with Murray, Lynette and 2 others we failed to find any. There was one strange damsel that we initially thought was one but examining photos have revealed it to be a strange thing indeed. After much discussion on social media it's been agreed it's a female Blue-tailed Damselfly with atypical blue markings on segment 7 (which shouldn't have amy blue on the top). 2 Wasp Spiders nearby were less controversial!  Birdwise 3 Whimbrel flew south, a couple of Chiffchaffs and a small handful of Stonechats was about it.
