No luck with the Lesser Emperor at Filby Broad X2
On Wednesday 4th July at Filby Broad a quick 30 minute visit failed to reveal the Elusive Lesser Emperor, Black- tailed Skimmer was all I saw. On Sunday 8th July, another visit to Filby Broad board walk revealed up to 6 Black- tailed Skimmers, a regular patrolling male Emperor Dragonfly, perhaps putting off a visit by the mega elusive Lesser Emperor which again failed to show in a 70 minute vigil between 12.30 and 1.40pm. A male Bullfinch calling showed briefly as he made his way through the hedge by the road.
