Cliffe Pools (01/08/10)

Migrant Hawker, Scarce Emerald Damselfly
It's a long time since I have been to this site - the last time was well before it became an RSPB reserve.

I wandered around looking in loads of ditches for the rare Emerald and Hawkers that had been seen, but with no luck.

I did, however, get a new species (Scarce Emerald Damselfly - they were quite common on the ditch edges where taller reeds grew) and five new bird year ticks:

Turtle Dove (143)
Greenshank (144)
Avocet (145)
Corn Bunting (146)
Spotted Redshank (147)

Other odonata:

Blue-tailed Damselfly
Ruddy Darter (loads)
Migrant Hawker
Emperor Dragonfly
Black-tailed Skimmer
