Broad-bodied Chasers

If anyone is after photographing Broad-bodied Chasers then the Egleton reserve at Rutland water is an excellent site for them at the moment. Check out the Summer walk behind lagoon 2 for tenerals and the small pond close to Dunlin hide on lagoon 4 for territorial males.
The above image were taken there last Friday.


After much persuasion I've relaunched the VC55 Wildlife blog. I was having problems on Wordpress getting people joined up as members and able to post. Hopefully this won't happen here.

VC55 Wildlife is intended as a place to post wildlife news - flora and fauna that may be of interest to others... it doesn't matter what it is - post. Birds are generally well catered for on the LROS website so only interesting or photographable birds please.

Remember to always put the interests of wildlife first and check that you are not putting species at risk. Also ensure that you are aware of who owns the land if putting out news.

Finally, why not share some of your photos with us? I hope you enjoyed your visit.
