    Some great photos again Clare. Particularly like the avocet coming in to land. Dare I say it's one of your best yet!

    Thanks, Ian - what a nice comment.  I'm pleased you like them!

    Paul queried the identity of the damselflies - are they common blue or variable?

    Our herring gulls are red listed birds.  Think about that the next time you hear some flaming idiot calling for a cull of them.

  • Definitely not common blue - S2 markings are wrong. Look like azure rather than variable, I think
  • Lovely - thanks for that!

    There are just too many similar insects ........ identifying them is even harder than warblers!
