Damsels in the wind

Another scorching day slight marred by a blustery east wind so apart from a Red Kite being mobbed by 2 Raven south of my garden at 11:50am this morning, Hobby over garden yesterday evening, the normal fare at the pond and the last of the breeding summer visitors to arrive on my patch then birding has gone quiet.
A search this afternoon of the Bridge Nursery garden and meadows produced Azure, White-legged, Large Red, Common Blue, and Blue-tailed Damselflies but no butterflies while nearby Stockton Cutting had 9 Dingy and 5 Grizzled Skipper, 2 Brimstone, 2 Peacock, 2 Speckled Wood, Green Hairstreak, Orange-tip, Common Blue and our first Small Blue of the year.

Just managed a glimpse of the Space Shed when she was already over Belgium at 4:40 this morning.
