Whixall Moss (30/06/2013)

Eventually got around to the long trek north to the moss.  On arrival, although it was quite breezy, the weather was fairly decent.  Walking to the right place I flushed a Hobby which later showed nicely overhead.  Also I saw a pair of Curlew which got very agitated when a Buzzard flew over.

Eventually reached the right pools and eventually pinned down a White-faced Darter (a new species for me).  When it flew over the pond the local Four-spotted Chasers chased it around the pool.

I managed to get a few shots when the darter landed on the far side of the pool but then after a while waiting it flew over to my side of the pool and landed a few inches from me.  I then got some much better shots.
