Back at soil hill

There were fewer clouds today than on Tuesday and this was reflected in the fact that I recorded 3 dragonfly species, not just 2...
-Common Hawker
-Black Darter
There were also dragonflies on other pools today, not just the biggest pool in the middle of the track:
-At least 4, possibly 5, Common Hawkers, including 1 female which was ovipositing
-2 male Black Darters, though they had moved pools
-2 male Common Darters also

Butterflies:
-Meadow Brown
-Large White
-Small White
-Small Tortoiseshell
-Peacock
-Small Copper
