Monday 20th August

Have been camping this w/e so missed the excitement.
Kingfishers have bee spotted on the fishing pond, Lew and Jim spotted one but talking to the young lads fishing, 15-20 minutes earlier three had been perched in a willow tree, keep your eyes peeled.
Walked around the usual track this pm but did not sight a kingfisher or a cuckoo.
The first field is still full of Common Darters, and there were a few Small Coppers, the first I have seen this year, but did spot a Migrant Hawker hunting along the tree line, managed a couple of shots of it flying and then it settled in a willow tree, extremely camouflaged and very difficult to spot even when know exactly where it is !!
