I was leading an NWT bird walk at Cley yesterday. The biggest surprise of the morning came in the form of a female Mandarin Duck on Pat’s Pool – my first of this species at Cley, and perhaps explaining why there are so few at Felbrigg at the moment! Got home at lunch-time to be greeted by a spectacular Southern Hawker over our small garden pond. Unfortunately it didn’t sit still long enough to have it’s picture taken.
I did manage this one of a female Common Darter though , which was there at the same time
