Rainham RSPB Nature Reserve

On Saturday me and Dad travelled up to Rainham, Essexs in search for a new door for my car as I have recently been an idiot and put a dent in it, by going into a wooden fence. I still think it moved into my car!!

While we were there we stopped off at Rainham Nature Reserve, on such a hot day with temperature well over 25*C we weren't expecting to see too much, but once we arrived we were surprised to see loads of damselflies and dragonflies. Including Black-tipped Skimmer (Orthetrum cancellatum) and Emperor Dragonflies (Anax imperator) and in the main Common Blues (Enallagma cyathigerum) when it came to  damselflies but we also spotted a Emerald Damselfly (Lestes sponsa) flying up and down a river.

While walking around we also spotted two little grebe (Tachybaptus ruficollis) families both with chicks, feeding just in front of us we both started snapping away trying to have the sun behind us which wasn't always possible.
