This patch of fringed water lily was found on Eldernell Wash 200mtrs from moretons leam where it is a scarce plant. The strange thing is this ditch was dry last year untill it was cleared out and re-connected to the summer water supply.

Common Darter A bright individual.

Brown winged hawkers are very common at present, though their wings are getting very tatty, this one was ovi-positing along a heavily poached margin - carefully placing its eggs just below the waters surface, appearing to push the eggs into the soft peat.
