Napton Res and Just So

Might not be brilliant for birding but the high temperatures we have experienced over the last few days and nights has certainly given dragonflies, butterflies and moths a welcome boost keeping us busy with the cataloging and identification of some species.
Bob and I had a look at Napton Reservoir and the Bridge Nursery pool finding Black-tailed Skimmer, Emperor Dragonfly and Migrant Hawker new for the year along with Shaded Broad-bar. At least 9 species of butterfly noted with 4 Marbled White the best while the only birds of note were good numbers of Reed Warbler and a juvenile Raven overhead.
