At Druridge there were no Spoonbill for the first time in ages, but 2 Little Egret dropped in. A Barn Owl sat on a distant fence post. The Budge field looks great for waders, but with all the vegetation it is impossible to see everything. At least 3 Yellow Wagtail did show briefly.
Kibblesworth brick works was a bit quiet today, warm, but a bit cloudy. There were 4 Emperor, 2 Four-spotted Chaser, 2 Common Hawker, loads of Common Darter, plus plenty of Azure and Common Blue Damselfly. A couple of Purple Hairstreak danced around the oak tops.

Far Pasture gave great close views of a Kingfisher, Jay and a Great Spotted Woodpecker.
Thornley Woods gave plenty of Large Red Damselfly, but no dragonflies.
