Sunday

We were there on Sunday but missed Spinney Bank. Mistake!

Tough Luck...

Hard luck, John. They were quite hard to spot, though; small and flighty... I wanted to get more pictures, but they disappeared.
I'd never been to Wicken Fen before, and I had a great day. I'll be visiting again, I think!

My 1st visit, too.

More or less an exploratory trip, for me, especially as Sunday remained quite dull until about 2:00 PM suppressing any activity. At least when the sun did put in an appearance, I found a Variable Damselfly, which is really what I was hoping for.

I'll be back, I'm sure, and include Spinney Bank next time - may have to join the NT, though. :))

Variable Damselflies

I found one of those at Little Paxton last year. Supposed to be outside their range, apparently.
