I am a birder and certainly don't know my Dragonflies so when I bumped into Trevor (the other Trevor) at the Pagham Harbour Friends Open Day I was extremely grateful for his help in identifying these wonderful flying machines on the reserve ponds. 

First up was a pair of Common Blue Damselflies

Broad-bodied Chaser

...and finally
Black-tailed Skimmer

Amazing creatures! Thanks, Trevor!

Whilst at the entrance to the reserve 4 Buzzards were circling in a thermal above us along with a few gulls. A real treat on a very hot afternoon!
