Migrant Hawker

Report. R.Lane. 4th October 2010

"Not a lot at Par this afternoon. On the Pool 1 x B-Headed Goose. On the sea 5 x Brent Geese (close inshore but can only assume they are the same pale-bellied form, still in residence.). On the Par East stream, I just glimpsed the Kingfisher again. It came in off the sea, close to the cliffs, and inland toward the Pool, even flew over the field above the cliff at one stage ! Otherwise a single Peacock butterfly was unusual for Oct., since they should all be in hibernation by now !
I also saw 1 or 2 x Migrant Hawker dragonflies. This is a separate (late) species which we may not have on the blog list. 'Migrant Hawker' is the specific name i.e. 'aeshna mixta'. "

Thanks for the report Roger.
I will add it to the list.
