After we came away from Stodmarsh we headed for Seaton lakes where Bob wanted to show me the Emerald damselflies that frequent a stream that runs alongside the main lake there.Although we saw many Banded the Emeralds unfortunately failed to show,we may have been a little early in the month for them.

Good numbers of Butterflies were on the wing however especially Red admirals.We found Large white,Small,Comma,Meadow brown,Holly blue,Large skipper and Small tortoiseshell,we added Gatekeeper at Grove where we went next.

What at first we took to be Swifts in fact turned out to be three Hobbies high over the lake and we found good numbers of Common Whitethroat.

On the way from Seaton to Grove we saw (3) Linnets and (1) Corn Bunting.
