Observant as ever I had noted that ST had occasionally forayed into the pond for dragonflies & damsels and I was passing so... I stopped.
Unused to pedestrians this Common Coot stood its ground as I approached. I was a little surprised to find two female Tufted Duck with broods. Again they observed me as they would a predator, coming close for an thorough inspection.
With a bit of a breeze the pond was Dragon free although I did happen upon a couple of Damselfly. The one below had me puzzled for a while and I have tentatively palce an Id of Blue-tailed Damselfly, female of the type infuscans, I'd appreciate confirmation from those wiser in the way of the Dragon. Apologies for the poor image on this one.
