I try to remember to keep an eye on various plants in the pond to see if any damsels or dragons are emerging. I could make out something on one of the stems but it was quite a while before it dawned on me it was an empty larval case and I had missed out this time.
Later in the day I managed to catch a glimpse of a Blue-tailed Damselfly resting by the pond so I assume this is what had emerged from the larval case.
Plenty of sightings of the Smooth Newts and just one of the many Common Stretch Spiders which build their webs between the various aquatic plants.
Plenty of coming and going every night on the Hedgehog front but the house remains empty at the moment.
It was a noisy day yesterday as there were young House Sparrows being fed and the first of the young Starlings kept yelling for more and more food.
