On the spur of the moment , i grabbed the camera and went down to the Newport Wetlands Center , at 4-30 pm the place was deserted with only two other peaple to be seen , the amount of Dragonflies there was amazing , i don’t think i’ve seen so many in years.
Bird life was a bit slow but on walking from the East hide along the shore line path a Wryneck was searching for food along the margins of the path in front of me , it was the first time i’d ever seen one ! i always thought they were bigger. Now i Know . It seemed unworried by my presence working its way along the path edge looking for insects , occasionally stopping to look at me , checking i wasn’t getting too close.
