Large Red Damselfly
Still no sign of Downy Emerald , but the Damselflies are maturing , and some are getting down to the business in hand .
A couple of butterflies were recorded , one being this female Large White , with just the merest of marking on her topwings .
The Gunnera , looking like gigantic rhubarb , a plant brought in by the Victorians , also has produced it's flower stalk .
The first Oxeye Daisies are in bloom .As are the first Yellow Flag Irises .
Common Blue DamselflyBlue Tailed Damselfly , not fully mature .
And finally , a better shot of the Thyme-leaved Speedwell , posted yesterday , but found around the lake this morning .
