Ha, well hello there.
Whilst out pursuing my new hobby of Field Archery at a private l;ocation near Castleside Co Durham i came across this beauty. I spent all of last summer looking for one of these and here it was right in front of me today.
A Golden Ring Dragonfly.
Also seen today whilst not looking for were Tree Pipit, Redstart, Yellow Hammer, Cuckoo, Garden Warbler and two yes two Tawny Owls along with nesting Curlews Red Kite and Buzzard not bad for not actually going out birding.
Good to be back will keep posting any more unusual sitings whilst out playing Robin Hood.
This is field Archery by the way if anyone interested.
Club i belong to is Butsfield Bowmen we play around in a secluded tree lined valley shooting at 3D Targets of Lions, Tigers and Bears oh my. Nothing is harmed though.
