Sun kept coming and going as I drove up to look for Dragons & Damsels but on arrival at the pond it quickly disappeared. I had a very brief sighting of a couple of Dragons engaged in combat and at the speed they were travelling I would hazard a guess that they were Four-spot Chasers but with the poor overhead conditions neither were seen again. Glimpses of Large-red and Common Blue Damsels were had and some tenerals lifted as I passed through some of the longer grass but I knew my fate and settled down to try to view some exuvia in amongst the reeds. No Dragon exoskeletons could be located but large numbers of Damsels were noted. I sat and counted 31 in view at one stage.
Numbers of Swifts and House Martins kept me entertained over the water before the drizzle started.
