Two chasers

On Sunday I spent some time looking for dragonflies. In the morning I went east to Goss Moor and Breney Common.  Goss Moor was strangely quiet.  There was more activity at Breney with good numbers of Large Red Damselfly, fewer Small Red, one Golden-ringed, one Keeled Skimmer and just a couple Emeralds.  I also saw five Four-spotted Chasers.

In the evening I decided to look at Godolphin and check for any Crossbills, as there seems to be a bit of a summer eruption going on (ie 40 at Croft Pasco).  I was also hoping for Purple Hairstreak but saw neither Crossbill or Hairstreak.  I did manage to see a nice male Broad-bodied Chaser though. More images can be found here.
