After my trip to Welney, I headed off to the fantastic Woodwalton Fen NNR. The main draw here are Scarce Chaser and you don’t have to go far to see them. Iain Leach was already in place and had a few perches placed out.
The first insect I saw though was one of many Red-eyed Damselfly.
There were plenty of Four-spotted Chaser about too and they regularly harassed each other as well as the Scarce Chaser.
After a message from Mark Rossell a few weeks ago made me wonder if the adult Scarce may well be past their best now and despite a fair few being worn and suffering wing damage there were still some nice looking blokes about – no females though.
