Ponds

With water in the ponds again I am very pleased to see some dragonflies back at LNEC (see yesterday), although a whole generation has been wiped out due to previous mistakes at the park, nature has a wonderful way of (usually) bouncing back, and other animals from neighbouring areas disperse and make this their new home.

Here a skimmer, which I believe is a Pied Skimmer.


Followed by the Crimson Dropwing


I believe this to be a russet percher in flight.
