Out and about

 I had a walk round Bold Moss, Leg-o-Mutton Dam and Eccleston Mere this afternoon looking for Dragonflies and Butterflies. On Bold Moss I had 5 species of butterflies and 6 species of dragonflies, the best being Emperor Dragonfly and Large Skipper. On Leg-o-Mutton Dam I had at least 20+ Red-eyed Damselfly, plus lots of Blue-tailed Damselfly and Common Blue Damselfly, also a Water Ladybird. On Eccleston Mere I had 2 Emperor's and 2 Black-tailed Skimmers with lots of Blue-tailed and Common Blue Damselfly present, and Speckled Wood and Large Skipper also noted. In total I saw 5 species of Butterfly and 8 species of Dragonfly. The Mere also had 2 adult Mute Swans with 5 cygnets.
