CWP draws a blank
I visited the Lower Moor Farm complex today in the hopes of finding emerging Large Reds and maybe even an early Downy Emerald...but it was not to be :o( But it shouldn't be too long if it stays warm and sunny. I thought I ought to mention here that there was an unusual sighting of a hawker type dragonfly on the 7th March. No positive ID could be made as it was viewed from a car travelling along the M4 near Swindon where it flew across the motorway in front of the observer, Geoff Cox! Logic would dictate that it could only have been a Vagrant Emperor (Hemianax ephippiger) but we shall never know for sure...frustratingly as this would be a new Wiltshire species!
