Six on Saturday

I managed to get another photograph of a dragonfly today. I spotted this one while cutting the beech hedge. It was a little worn, possibly having been caught out in a couple of the very heavy showers we had today. I think it is the blue form of a female common hawker, but open to correction. Neil has corrected me – it is a Brown Hawker, Aeshna grandis.

Finally the coneflowers are flowering, but there doesn’t appear to be many flower heads.

The chicks are growing and they had their first explore of the greenhouse today.

And finally we have been enjoying the first blackberries from the hedgerows and bog road!

      Thank you Amy. Again I was lucky. It was resting, possibly having just got caught out in a heavy rain shower. I saw it later in flight again.

    Those chicks steal the show! they are so sweet. I hope you and your family are doing well!
    I’m trying to stay upright, caught between 2 new books coming out at the same time, so please forgive me if I haven’t been visiting as often as usual. And wish me well, please!
