Was wondering if there'd be any dragonflies about, well I wasn't disappointed. Not so many now but still estimate up to 20 darters seen including a few tandem and ovipositing pairs, and eventually a couple of Migrant Hawkers showed in one of the fields.

Back outside many a common bird around the car park, small flocks of goldfinches and long-tailed tits in the hedges, trees still very leafy I was surprised to see after the recent winds.
In the air 4 red kites and a buzzard, a flyover redwing and two grey wagtails. The forbidden pond had a couple of pairs of darters and little else.
Finally I found this unfortunate little creature in the middle of the road :
