A mornings with Javier Ripoll watching Dragonflies and Birds.
|Little Egret (Garceta Común / Egreeta garzetta).|
|Violet Dropwing (Trithemis annulata).|
|Badger Tracks in the mud.|
|Scarlet Darter (Crocothemis erythraea).|
On our way back to the bridge we added Blue / Common Emperor (Anax imperator) to the list. In the same area we also saw Barn Swallow (Golondrina Común / Hirundo rustica), Great Tit (Carbonera Común / Parus major), Jay (Arrendajo / Garrulus glandarius), Iberian Water Frog (Rana Común / Rana Perezi), Large Psammodromus (Lagartija colilarga / Psammodromus algirus), Small White (Artogeia rapae), Speckled Wood (Pararge aegeria) and Holly Blue (Celastrina argiolus).
|Red-veined Darter (Sympetrum fonscolombii).|
Just as we were making our way back towards the car it started to rain and did it rain, it hammered down for the next hour or so. We decided to call it a day at this point and we both headed off.
Thanks Javier for a cracking morning and it was good to meet up at last. Also thanks for the extra info and help.
