Blue Tailed Damselflies.

Report. R.Lane. Tuesday 18th May 2010

" What a strange, warm but sunless day, job to find anything much, especially birds. Just list what there was I guess, all within the vicinity of H'bush; P'mill or Par, but pretty low totals (butterflies mainly):-
1 x Brimstone; 4 x Lg.Whites; 6+,Sm.Whites; 30+,GVWhites; 2 x Orange-Tips; 1 x Holly Blue; 3 x Peacocks; 1 x Comma and 1 x SM.TORTOISESHELL (quite late overwintered brood, at Par W).
Other items: now 10+, Early Purple Orchids (at site of 6 previously); bluebell was 2ft 3ins now 2ft 9ins struggling to reach light above a 40ft pine tree ! Few birds except Par, 1 x male Reed Bunting ; 5 x Whimbrel over.
Only new item was 6+, Blue Tailed Damselflies, at Par Beach Pool, apparently emerged today ."

Thanks for the report Roger
