At the little reedbed I finally managed to get a shot of one of the two singing Reed Warblers.

Returning my attention to the insects I saw my first Large Skippers of the year were now on the wing.

Back at the dragonfly pools I was a bit disappointed that there were no Emperor Dragonflies on the wing, and I also saw but failed to photograph any of the handful of Common Blue Damselflies which were mixed in with the Azure Damselflies. I did get a shot of a male Large Red Damselfly though.

A good end to a mid-summer insect extravaganza.
