Clennon Valley Ponds, Goodrington

Small red-eyed damselflies frequent on the algal mats towards the bottom end of the lower lake, all males so far. Other species around the lakes included bluetailed damselfly, azure damselfly, black tailed skimmer, broad bodied chaser and emperor dragonfly. The top big lake was particularly good for the skimmers and chasers.

Berry Head

Two - three Red-veined Darters hunting and chasing each other over the wildflower meadow area immediately right - out of the main car park as if you were heading for the Northern Fort. Two regularly landed on the path and Yellow-rattle. A pod of 20-30 Common Dolphin were actively feeding due east of the main headland and plenty of Painted Lady Butterflies all around the headland. Very quiet for birds - even the Guillemots have all left the cliffs!
