A first very pleasent visit to Reighton Ponds today with a small group from Scarborough Field Naturalists led by John Hulme to look for Dragonflies and Damselflies.
As we approached a Skylark landed on the grass path directly in front of us and I managed a quick record shot.
Around the ponds a few 'blue' Damselflies and a couple of Emperor Dragonflies were flying.
After lunch we moved on to Bempton RSPB where a Kestrel was flying opver head (took lots of shots but always too distant for more than record shots). It has to be an ambition to get close to get quality Kestrel shots. Yes, close I am developing a theme.
We then viewed the Gannets. I love the markings of the young birds (juveniles/first year?).
A pleasant day, thanks John, Brian,David.
