24th May (New Forest)

The only reason for this trip was to try and see a Wood Warbler. Success! One seen singing very close in the deciduous forest west of the ridge at Acres Down. Also here, a Redstart, a Woodlark and a pair of Crossbills flying over.

Now switched to dragonflies with a trip to Eyeworth Pond but the only species seen were actually by the car park, i.e. Large Red Damselfly and Blue-tailed Damselfly. Saw a Cuckoo flying over which called its 'bubbling' call.

Last site was Ober Water where recorded the following species:

Broad-bodied Chaser, Large Red Damselfly, Azure Damselfly, Beautiful Demoiselle and my first Keeled Skimmer of the year.
