Yayoi and I spent a lovely day on Saturday walking around Sunnymeads and Wraysbury, just down the road from Windsor, checking out what nature has to offer.
After a short walk around Sunnymeads, we had a lovely picnic lunch on the banks of a lake in Wraysbury. There was a huge amount of bright blue damselflies everywhere. Back at home we checked out the British Dragonfly Society website to see what kind of damselfly we had been watching – as far as we can gather, it was the Common Blue Damselfly.
It was a great day for wildlife spotting. I also managed to get a photo of a butterfly that I had not seen before – a Speckled Wood. Apparently, it’s now the main flying season for the Speckled Wood.
I also got this photo of a cricket, which we think is a Dark Bush Cricket.
