Labels: St Mary's Island
A run out on the bike the other day as it was sunny for a change my first Damsels of the year with Large Red & Azure and a Speckled Wood these where at an old reservoir yet a similar site held none but it did have a Common Tern drop in catch a fish and sit with two mallard while it digested it and preened eventually lifting circling a couple of times and then dropped and came up with another fish which it flew off with probably for it's mate .
On St Mary's Island where four seal pups one of which was just released ,they put up a sign and cordoned off the area so as not to disturb it but this just attracted lots of people curios to see what was going on the other three where just lying well up on the rocks behind the Lighthouse, the wetland area held nothing at all which was a bit disappointing .So June is a good time to look for Dragonflies "if" the weather is right nice warm sunny days with the occasional cloud cover so that patrolling species such as Emperor rest up now and then so you can perhaps get the odd photo , not today by the look of it , another cool overcast day !!!
