There were a good few damselflies on the wing, probably Azure and there was also a 4-Spot Chaser. My husband saw the first Norfolk Hawker of the year this morning. I had no luck tonight but at least things seem to be getting going at last.
The Water Voles were also active again in the dyke at the bottom of the garden and the first Common Spotted Orchids were flowering in our orchard.
As dusk fell and a pair of bats chased each other back and forth above the patio, mist began to roll out of the dykes and across the marshes giving an atmospheric end to the evening.
