Kibblesworth 14-6-11

A visit to Kibblesworth Old Brickworks pools , day was changeable with some nice sunny spells  I counted about 20 Four Spot Chasers,  these constantly clashing so they only settled for sometimes a short spell and given the location of the vegatation meant at the time you where looking into the light  a female  came so close as it was Ovipositing it brushed past me , A single Emperor put in a brief appearance but did not settle , Common Blue, Meadow Brown, and Small Heath on the wing , not as many Damsels as would have thought and the Teneral ones in the grass  I just could not get anywhere near. Jay, Great Spotted Woodpecker, Sparrowhawk and a Curlew that had been on the far side flew over into the fields and called for most of the time I was there, the main pool seems to suffer from disturbance like dog owners throwing items all over for there dog to retrieve and deep ruts from 4X4 's  of the other two pools  from my last visit one was completely dry and another mostly overgrown
