A speckling of woods

A walk along the banks of the Tyne from Newburn to Wylam this afternoon found half a dozen or so Speckled Woods in the woodland glades between Close House Reserve and George Stephensons Cottage.
Taking advantage of some shelter from the blustery wind they seemed to prefer nettles but would fly up 10 or 20 feet across the face of the adjacent trees if disturbed.
The local dog and child walkers seemed to find it amusing me taking photographs of the ground but I managed to enlighten a couple of them.
A good few Dragonflies also took advantage of the conditions but not many birds other than a couple of tribes of mixed Tits.
