Sunny but polar

Heysham Obs
A wind direction the scousers like, but few of us in the north of the county.  It kept the temperature hovering just a little bit too low for a dragonfly-fest

Middleton IE
Pair of Gadwall on the fence pond, then flew south
At least two Reed Warblers

4-spotted Chaser - c25
Black-tailed Skimmer - 2 males
Emperor - one male
plenty of Azure, Common Blue & Blue-tailed damselflies and two Large Red Damselflies

No coastal birding I am aware of today

Yet another period of absence coming up - could one of you please post daily updates, even negative ones, from Friday to Friday please.  Thanks.  Implicitly, no moth trap checking from me Friday to Thursday inclusive
