This morning a walk around the Ted Eliss Wheatfen nature reserve , its warmish and still a bit breezy so might have a chance to spot a Swallowtail but hopefully a few Norfolk Hawkers which i have never seen.
First view of the reserve, beautiful :)
Almost straight away i have spotted a few dragons , Scarce chasers there are loads of them as i walk along the rush lined channels. another new species i have never seen before :)
Female Scarce chaser.
Male Scarce chaser
I have come to a crossroads, i want to go right along a smaller drain but a family of swans have nested right on the edge of the path and they are Not letting me pass!!!!!!!!!! lol
I continue on the path along the River Yare boundary but cant find any that are settling. walking all way around and come to a smaller cut through track along a small drain , and there are loads of dragons flying everywhere :) Scarce Chasers and Norfolk Hawkers patrolling along the edges in repetitive flying patterns .
Mating Scarce Chasers :)
Overgrown drain where the Norfolk Hawkers are flying.
Yay got a perched Norfolk Hawker , had to shoot with 100-400mm lens and crop to get these images.
Stunning dragons with bright green eyes .
It has been a really nice walk around this reserve, no sign of any Swallowtails but plenty of Dragons :)
After a successful morning its time to go back to Sea Palling to give the dogs a good run on the beach , its quite warm again and the sun is out. they are soon tired lol
Awwww Poor Chester , he looks Knackered :(
