Hartslock on a hot day

A day out for orchids, dragonflies and butterfly's at the Berkshire, Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire Hartslock Wildlife Trust Reserve near Goring, Oxfordshire. At least 30 Red Kite in the area and among the many warblers seen we had Lesser Whitethroat and family parties of Garden Warbler. Common Blue, Brimstone, Dingy Skipper and Green Hairstreak were plentiful while the orchids flowering included a number of hybrids. A walk back to the car along the riverside footpath was timely as we jammed in on a Club-tailed Dragonfly that had just been found and a perched Kingfisher. A cracking day out Wallace.
