Late News . . . .

The local grapevine (in this case The Birdman) informs me that no less than 5 (five!) species of Odonata were on the wing on Saturday at Kibblesworth Brickworks pools, Gateshead's premier dragonfly site.
Don't know in what numbers but the species recorded were Large Red, Azure, Blue-tailed and Common Blue damsels, and the usual first dragonfly Four-spotted Chaser.

That's all the early species so I'll have to try and hunt them out locally (let's hope the kids want to go to Gibside later in the week ;)
