New Damsels (and Newts!)

I spied a couple of Damselflies in the garden the other day, and of course I took photos. I though they were just the standard Azures or Common Blues but on later inspection I discovered I’d found a new Damsel, so introducing … the Dainty Damselfly

And while hanging around our garden pond looking for frogs, we were delighted to find NEWTS! So exciting! These are a few photos of baby newts but we also spied at least one adult in there as well 😀

  1. When my then partner and I moved house, the people buying it were a bloody nightmare. They were threatening to fill in the lovingly created pond. So we made sure the relevant authorities knew there were great crested newts in there, which meant the habitat couldn’t be disturbed. Heehee
