Southern Damselflies & Black Hairstreak

 Visited two Berks, Bucks & Oxon Wildlife Trust reserves near Oxford today with Dry Sandford Pit producing two hoped for Southern Damselflies while Whitecross Green Wood had the delightful Black Hairstreak with 3 on show though 12 had appeared yesterday. Plenty of year ticks as well with Emperor Dragonfly, Southern Marsh Orchid and Marbled White plus good numbers of Meadow Brown, Large Skipper and Red Kite.

Black Hairstreak - that's the problem being a short-arse the bushes are to tall for us midgets
