Middleton Nature Reserve - late morning.
It was barely 18C before the sun came out, but enough to warm the blood of this pair of Red-veined darters.
There were another two male RVD around main pond edges.
No information yet regarding sightings from warmer afternoon.
Common darter (mature males now providing an alternative red bodied dragonfly)
Black tailed skimmer
Little grebe - juv on "no swimming" pond
Ocean Edge salt marsh creek
Wooden jetty area - evening.
There were 17 Mediterranean gulls between No.1 outflow and wooden jetty, 4 hours before high water. Surprisingly, none with darvic rings.
The female Rock pipit is still feeding at least one juv.
