I netted a few common blue and azure damsels and 2 emperor dragonflies were flying over the water. Upon arrival dark clouds from the west appeared and most odonata went to roost. 2 shaded broad bar moths were disturbed from the grass and overhead, linnets and swallows. In the hedgerow a reed bunting and yellowhammers called. A most pleasant hour.
