We’re not used to it but we seem to have had a summer! The pond is holding its own albeit it is a good 60 cms (a good 2 feet when I went to school) down on its winter water level high.
The ducklings have grown and gone but the pond is now alive with dragonflies and damselflies. I’m no expert but feel reasonably confident in saying there are amongst them common blue damselflies! Have a look yourselves and see what you can identify.
