Following a morning appointment I returned home via Sutcliffe Park LNR.

As I arrived the clouds began to close in and although it was quite warm and muggy, a strong wind had begun to blow. Thsi was to be a bad sign as there was very little activity from Butterflies and I didnt see one Dragonfly during my visit, I had hoped to get some pictures but only managed to photograph this rather worn looking Gatekeeper.
