These are my first photos at the pond in June. The pheasant has a small brood of chicks but too small to find in the long grass where she’s keeping them safe from predators. Also here, a juvenile long-tailed tit, a cinnabar moth, small tortoiseshells, a meadow brown and a small heath.
On the pond are a dancing troupe of azure damselflies, broad-bodied chaser, large red damselfly and the first of five emperor dragonflies I’ve seen so far this year.
