Pictures: Keeled Skimmer, Grass Snake, 2x Downy Emerald, Common Lizard
I was determined to identify the emerald dragonflies at the moat pond. After a lot of scanning I managed to get a good view of the face of one of the emeralds and it revealed it to be a Downy Emerald. There were 4 or 5 on the margins of the pond.
Other species included:
imm. Keeled Skimmer
Large Red Damselfly
Also around the heath were a Woodlark (119), a hunting Grass Snake in the margins of the pond and a Common Lizard on the boardwalk. A number of Tree Pipits were singing around the heath and I did hear one Redstart and one Dartford Warbler although they were'nt seen.
