Went hunting Dragons and Damsels at Blackmoor Bridge this afternoon and was pleased to find a Wood Sandpiper on the muddy margin, plus three Green Sandpipers, a Dunlin and a Ringed Plover – all at some considerable distance. Record shot from about 140 metres:
The only Dragons seen were Brown Hawkers which I find the most difficult to photograph (meaning I’ve never managed it – including this trip). However there were good numbers of Damsels about, although the windy conditions made it difficult to track them down:
All with Olympus E-M5 plus 60mm macro except the male Emerald which was with the 75-300mm and the Sandpiper with the Canon 400mm f5.6 and 1.4x converter (Manual focus).
