   A return to Bentley Wood, in search of Purple Emperors again. I did manage to see a couple this time, high in the tree tops again though. Other Butterflies seen were:
Large & Small Skipper, Ringlet, Gatekeeper, Meadow Brown, Silver-washed Fritillary, Brimstone & White Admiral.

   Then again onto the New Forest for Dragonflies. Crockford stream was our first stop, there were Small Red Damselfly, Southern Damselfly, Keeled Skimmer and Golden-ringed Dragonfly. Also there we had Silver-washed Fritillary and Silver-studded Blue.

Southern Damselfly (Female)
Southern Damselfly (Male)

Small Red Damselfly (Male)
   Mill Lawn Brook was the last stop before heading home, hoping to find Scarce Blue-tailed Damselfly. Sadly, no sign, but i did have Small Red Damselfly again.
