Again Meadow Brown butterflies are the dominant species on the grasslands, but around the reed-bed I find a Broad-bodied Chaser, a black-Tailed Skimmer, 2 male Banded Demoiselles and a Common Blue Damselfy. A good variety of species but I would have hoped for a few more of each.

An added bonus is a party of 6 Common Swifts and at least 1 Emperor Dragonfly hawking for insects over the lake.
