Four-spotted Chaser this morning at the allotment

Spent the morning exploring Cawston Heath, south west of Aylsham – part of the Buxton/Marsham group, all of which are now managed by Norfolk Wildlife Trust. It looks good for the range of typical heathland species but, in truth, this morning we saw very little. Little Owl on the middle of the heath was a bit of a surprise and there were plenty of dragonflies however, including several splendid Brown Hawker, Four-spotted Chaser, Common Darter and various damselflies.

On my return home, went straight up to the allotment to do some work and was delighted to find Common Darter, Four-spotted Chaser and Broad-bodied Chaser all on the wildlife pond! On the way back for lunch, twenty plus Swift, screaming overhead.
