Fed-up with the current poor selection of dragonflies available at Felbrigg, I called in at Hickling Broad NWT on my way back from twitching the Caspian Tern at Breydon Water. Turned out to be a good decision – adding two more species to my growing list, as well as seeing a good variety of other species.

Hairy Dragonfly


Black-tailed Skimmer


First new species – a terrible shot of Norfolk Hawker. Just couldn’t find a static one


Ruddy Darter


Common Darter


Second new species – Variable Damselfly. I surprised myself by being reasonably confident in my initial id.


As with all my dragonfly id. I’m happy to be corrected if I’ve goofed-up!
