|Western Willow Spreadwing (Lestres viridis).|
As soon as we arrived at the water we added a new species to my local patch list which was a fine Western Willow Spreadwing (Lestres viridis), this was soon followed by a second new patch species, a female Keeled Skimmer (Orthetrum coerulescens). In the same area we had several Red-veined Darters (Sympetrum fonscolombii), a pair of mating Bath Whites (Blanqiverdosa / Pontia daplidice), Small White (Artogeia rapae), Spanish Brown Argus (Aricia cramera), Clouded Yellow (Colias Común / Colias corcea) and Speckled Wood (Pararge aegeria).

Jayne produced a cracking evening meal, later we sat on the terrace and had a few drinks and picked up a calling Little Owl (Mochuelo Europeo / Athene noctua) and had nice views of a Red-necked Nightjar (Chotacabras Cuellirrojo / Caprimulgus ruficollis) which did a fly passed at dusk.
