Darting about

Just a few pics from the last month or so which include a couple of new species for me, Black darter and Black tailed skimmer. Both were local, the skimmer at the waters and the darter at banks pond.

A text from AJJ followed by one from PC Wanderings told of a Woodchat Shrike on the Carr so on a rare day off I got my change and left the shop. The twitch was on, I met Alan at mine and we headed off on the one minute trip to the carr. The crowd was only a small one and after a brief wait the faded Shrike and a Whinchat showed on the fenceline west of the viewing platform. After a while I went and hid in the hedge nearer the fence and got some shots the Whin at 200x zoom  the Wood at 100x .
