Last week a visit to Kibblesworth Brick Pools apparently the site of a very large Brickworks than used as a refuse tip now landscaped, the report of a Broad Bodied Chaser , a Dragonfly species that has evaded me so far was all it took for me to head over , I arrived with expectations of getting some good photos of my fist BBC but alas I circled the pond numerous times with no sign a couple of Large Red Damselflies myriads of teneral Damsels floating off to the nearby tree cover was all I got , I even stupidly formatted my card losing the photos I had taken . Having not found any actual dragonflies I sat down for my sandwiches when a Cuckoo called and flew across just behind me as I watched it into the distance a red Kite came circling overhead and later three Buzzards in the air together. So with the target not around I looked for Butterflies plenty of Wall Brown and a few Small Heath but only one Dingy Skipper could be found , I find these a difficult species to locate more Moth like in flight it's hard to keep track of them watching till they land .
Kibblesworth Brick Pools there are actually several pools one is very overgrown one drys out and all suffer from severe disturbance , from Vehicles, rubbish, or people constantly throwing items in for dogs to retrieve
