River Thames @ Wargrave (17/05/10)

The warmest day for a while and decided to go looking for Club-tailed Dragonflies on the river.

Things started slowly with 3 Banded Demoiselles but then I found a small path the wandered away from the river where I got good views of a female/imm male Club-tailed Dragonfly resting on vegetation.

Other interesting sightings were first a male Mandarin Duck (114) and then a female with 8 ducklings (she was chivvying them across the river using her wings as to push them along).

I briefly saw the tail end of a Grass Snake disappearing onto the river bank and then there were two fly-over Red Kites and a Buzzard.
