First stop on Friday morning was Kibblesworth for Dragonflies. The only Dragonflies I saw were a couple of Black Darter but the dog walkers turned up so I left them to it and went to Shibdon Ponds again for Dragonflies. None around when I first got there but the Mallards kept me occupied for a while. First Dragonflies spotted were Common Darter then at least three Migrant Hawkers put on a show chasing each other around the pond and occasionally landing allowing me some photo opportunities.
There were a few unusual Mallard around including this one.
