A Visit To Rutland Water - on 10th October, 2018
It had been more than two months since my previous visit to Rutland Water, so a return was long overdue, and this seemed to be the day for it! It was a sunny, but breezy, day with temperatures forecast to be around the 20°C mark. I took my usual owling rout...

A Grand Day - on 27th September, 2018
It was forecast to be a fine-weather day, so I set off to visit Willington Grave l Pits, where I had not been so far this year, although it is not very far from my home. This place can be good for birds, and also offers the possibility of dragonflies. The f...

Mixed Feelings - 17th to 20th September, 2018
This is my second attempt at writing this post. For reasons that I won't go into, my first attempt stalled. It started off long on words and short on images. It's still short on images, but not quite so long on words. It's definitely not a photographic post...

Kelham Bridge - on 24th September, 2018
I had intended this blog post to be one about the recent visit that Lindsay and I made to North Yorkshire, but my writing stalled for reasons that I won't go into here, so here is an account of a visit I made to a local Wildlife Trust site. I had decided th...

Hicks Lodge Revisited - Almost!! - on 5th September, 2018
I was starting to think that I ought to do a bit of local birding, as birds (apart from those in my garden) seem to have been somewhat off the agenda lately, with my main focus having been on dragonflies and damselflies. Hicks Lodge, with its trees, lakes, ...

A Return to Heather Lake - on 30th August, 2018
This blog post brings me a little more up-to-date, having had a couple of reasonably fruitful local visits in the past week or so. On this occasion, I decided to make a return visit to Heather Lake. This place is great for Emperor dragonflies in the middle ...

In Search of White-legged Damsels - on 20th July, 2018
As suggested in my previous post, for this post I am harking back to a visit I made earlier in the summer. The Ashby Canal is relatively close to my home, and there are a couple of places on its length that I know to be quite good for White-legged Damselfly...

European Hornet - August, 2018
The European Hornet (Vespa crabro) is Europe's largest native eusocial wasp. It is rarely aggressive, unless threatened, but is said to have a sting somewhat more powerful than the Common Wasp (Vespular vulgaris). Until a few years ago, I'd never knowingly ...

Another Five-Owl Day - It's Magic! - on Saturday 18th August, 2018

Ticknall Limeyards - on 24th July, 2018
Ticknall Limeyards, just over the border into Derbyshire from my home, is one of my favourite local spots for communing with nature - even though its history is industrial! It can be very good for dragonflies, and is one of the best local spots for Red-eyed...
