On my way out of the village checked on Banks Pond expecting some Dragonfly action. Sure enough Four spotted chaser overhead and what looked like two Ruddy Darter over the pond. As the Moorhen family moved away I popped the fence to try and get some pics but then noticed the Little Grebe at its usual station. Raised the camera and realised it had one on board!
On closer inspection the one turned out to be two and I retreated with haste lest I disturb the happy family. I presume the other adult is still in the reeds either with young or waiting for more hatching.
The Moorhens looked on with their four young about a week old still in attendance whilst one adult Oytercatcher remained on the far bank with two young almost ready to fly judging by the stretching and flapping.
Buoyed by the fine start to my day called in at Bellasis where at least four males and one female Banded Demoiselle were flying.
