Water soldier & dragons...

It is a brilliant time of year to view Odonata species at Paxton Pits:

Norfolk Hawker
brown hawker
black-tailed skimmer
hairy dragonfly

red eye
common blue
blue tail
banded damoiselle

Bird Sightings: (highlights)
goshawk (pair flying over Rudd lake)
nightingale (2 late singing males)

Meadow Trail:
Meadow is still very good for orchids and there are bee orchards at the back of Le Farge.
