A cracking summer tune, and for the hottest day of the year that was Sunday, a Quail singing south of the river, audible from South Marsh West, was the highlight of the day at Tophill Low, East Yorkshire.
It was a quick tour round as I wanted to check out waterbodies for Odonata, whilst, as someone noted the small lens on the camera, looking for things that didn't require the bigger gear!
Finally managed to nail an Emperor Dragonfly up here for the year. Having seen a few in Northants earlier in the month, it was about time one was flying around... the hot day producing a lone male whizzing around the East Pond area. Also managed a good number of Black-tailed Skimmers spread from SMW to North Marsh and onwards to the road that runs up to Top Lock. Add in a Hairy Dragonfly at SME, plus one was seen at the north end earlier in the day, meant my quick tour was rather productive... before I needed to wet my lips with a much needed cold beer!
