Paid a brief visit in the morning for an hour. The Hobby Falco subbuteo was still present usual spot on the south-west corner of Main Lake. Other birds of note were a single Pink-footed Goose Anser brachyrhynchus on Main Lake and the drake Mandarin Aix galericulata was on Carp Lake.
Migrant Hawker Aeshna mixta and Common Darter Sympetrum striolatum were still much in evidence, though living precariously with a major predator in residence. A single female Common Blue Damselfly Enallagma cyathigerum drags this species into October, this species has now been active for six months.
A Wall Lasiommata megera was a nice addition to the year list, a species that is rapidly declining in numbers, especially from inland sites. A single Red Admiral Vanessa atalanta was also warming up in the morning sun.
