Woods Mill (16th August 20101)

Photos: Small Red-eyed Damselfly, Southern Hawker, Migrant Hawker, Brown Hairstreak

My first visit to this Sussex Wildlife Trust site and it looks like a good place for dragonflies/damselflies based on the species that we saw there.

We walked along the ditches and around the lake and saw the following species:

Southern Hawker
Common Darter
Common Blue Damselfly
2 (maybe 3) Migrant Hawkers
2 (maybe 3) Brown Hawkers
Emperor Dragonfly
Blue-tailed Damselfly
Small Red-eyed Damselfly
Ruddy Darter

In the main lake were loads of Carp and a few Roach - you could hear the Carp sucking the lily pads!

Mum spotted a hairstreak butterfly feeding on some flowers which turned out to be a Brown Hairstreak which is a new species for me.
