My blog is mostly about wildlife, particularly birds, walking, days out, all growing things and anything else that comes to mind.

I was on my knees clearing blanket weed from the pond today, when I espied this very newly emerged dragonfly. Now I'm going to stick my neck out and say it's a Common Darter? No doubt I shall have to retract my neck rather rapdily if it's not!
Any help with ID would, as usual, be gratefully received :D
It always fascinate me when dragons turn their heads around in order to wipe their "faces" with their front legs!
A lover of wildlife and birds in particular and a keen photographer
who's learning all the time!
For me there's nothing better than the great outdoors and escaping into
it as often as I can; even if it's only a walk very locally. I love the
sea and water in any form. There's something magical about reflections
in very still water.
