Back on the Landslip.

Despite a brisk easterly wind the sun was shining yesterday and there was autumn warmth in sheltered spots.At several ponds on the landslip at Compton Chine the dragonfly activity remains high with all the species encountered a few days ago  still evident.However I was very pleased to observe a female Emperor majestically cruising around  the largest pond looking for places to lay her eggs.Quite late in the season to see this particular species on the wing.
