Woods Mill Visit
Beautiful Demoiselle (Female)

The Eastbourne Group visited Woods Mill on 18 June 2015 and on a guided walk lead by Mike Russell in glorious sunshine were well rewarded with some great sightings of 21 bird species, 7 of Dragonflies/Damselflies, 9 species of Butterflies and 2 of Moths plus numerous plant species. The highlights included the purring of a Turtle Dove, a Cuckoo, a Little Grebe with chicks, both the Banded and Beautiful Demoiselles (see photo of the latter), an Emperor Dragonfly ovipositing, the first Large Skipper of the year for many of us and a large number of very small “froglets” crossing a path in front of us.
