Little Whittenham 8 May: No oriole but first damselfly of the season!

Alerted by Badger's helpful text, we had a pleasant but fruitless walk this morning around Little Whittenham Wood and Clump. Not a hint of any Oriole, but there were a few Garden Warblers and plenty of Blackcaps.

Determined to find my first Odonata of the season in this mini heat wave, I returned down by the river but to no avail. However right back by the car, I found a single mature Large Red Damselfly behind the pond, which follows the teneral singleton reported last week from Otmoor by the Robys and David Hastings.
