The new garden pool is starting to bring in some interesting species including a new bird species today. 3 Common Crossbills dropped in to have a drink but they were disturbed when I went clattering in, quite unexpected in amongst all the olives around here.
When things had warmed up it was more like a scene from a WW2 movie, with 5 male dragons of three species (Orange-winged Dropwing, Red-veined Darter and Epaulet Skimmers) fighting over the 3m x1.5m pool. In between all the male action females of the R-V Darter and Epaulet Skimmers were both egg laying, very nice to see.
