The bridge overlooking the South Drain just south of the Avalon Marshes Centre, off Shapwick Road, was very good for Odonata today:
Loads of Red-eyed Damselflies on the lily-pads
Large Red Damselflies
Azure Damselflies egg-laying
Male Emperor dragonfly holding territory
Lots of Four-spotted Chasers fighting and in copulation
Very early Black-tailed Skimmers
Hairy Dragonflies over Canada Farm main drove.

Plus 2 cuckoos being chased by Meadow Pipits south of Jack’s Drove on Tealham Moor
