This specimen should mature to be a green form (90% of population) female Azure ,
and a very recently emerged , probably female , Banded Demoiselle . A visit the screen on the other side of the pit , found one birder , who informed me that 'if I was there a few minutes ago , a Marsh Harrier caught and flew off with it's meal' , such is life , and birding . Returning to the car , another meeting with the 'rare species' , who had done about the same as I had on that side of the road
Before heading off to pick Carol up , a quick look at the top end of the ARC pit from the road , found nothing more exciting than an Oystercatcher in it's nest , with mate in attendance .
