19-06-08 Holywell

A cycle ride to Holywell,plenty of Swifts over the East end with House Martins near the hide so I tried !!!!! to capture some shots as they past , also a Rat on the feeder, a couple of large Dragonflies on one of the tracks Migrant Hawkers would be my guess ,but neither would land, found in a sunny sheltered area. a lone very young Shellduck fed in the open, I find Shellduck usually are very attentive parents but there was no sign of any.
This Moth caught my eye
Stunning Water Lillies on a local fishing pond

I am no fan of the Rat,it climbed this tree with ease.
