6th August, 2010 Ashdown Forest.

Went with Doreen to The Old Lodge N.R. in the Ashdown Forest to look unsuccessfully for the Black Darter. The only dragonflies seen were 1 male Keeled Skimmer, several Small Red Damselflies and 2 Azure Blue Damselflies. Butterflies seen: 1 Holly Blue, fair numbers of Common Blues, Meadow Browns & Gatekeepers and 2 Small Coppers.
Also nice views of 2 Spotted Flycatchers.
