A Dragon Saved My Day!

White-faced Darter

The peaks and troughs of twitching hit me again today...4.50am waiting to get into Old Moor RSPB, Yorkshire in an attempt to see the Least Sandpiper which was present till dusk...7.00am thoroughly naffed off that the little blighter had seemingly cleared off over night! Luckily I knew of a Dragonfly species I wanted to see not to far away...BUT the weather was horrid, windy and intermittant showers...perfect for dragonflies! Anyway finally the sun peeked out of the clouds and I manged to see 5 White-faced Darters at Whixall Moss, Shropshire. A very poor record short is attached above. Also managed a new moth for me which was Ancylis apicella.
