Waterside Wildlife.

 





A recent leisurely stroll along the towpath beside the River Wey Navigation on a warm sunny day provided the following wildlife encounters.




 
 Common Darter.

Brown Hawker.

At one spot I watched at least half a dozen Migrant Hawkers in flight over the water and then managed to locate one individual resting overhead.


Just a few butterfly species were seen including a single Small Copper, several Green-veined Whites plus a Comma and Red Admirals.

Comma.

 Red Admiral.

Jackdaw.






A gentle stroll through Bushy Park today provided an opportunity to grab some images of our smallest corvid, the Jackdaw (Corvus monedula).

Emerald Damselfly.


A wander through the dense grassy scrub behind the Great Pond this morning produced a few sightings of the dainty and attractive Emerald Damselfly (Lestes sponsa). It was quite a challenge to accurately focus on any individual perched deep amongst the grasses with an immature male (above) being the first subject. 



Next was an an immature female.


After a bit of a search I finally located the more colourful male.
