    A trip to the Somerset Levels began at Westhay Moor.

Small Red-eyed Damselfly
   Not a lot of birds again sadly, so again its Insects i concentrated on. I found a couple of Small Red-eyed Damselflies, which is always nice to find....had a few other Damselflies there too.

Blue-tailed Damselfly (Female- form Rufescens)

Red-tipped Clearwing

 Then.....what is that i thought. Blimey... its a Clearwing Moth!!! But, which one? I got a photo, awful i know, but enough to ID it, sadly didn't managed to improve on this one...But as its only the second Clearwing i have seen was quite happy....Its a Red-tipped Clearwing, as you can see from the photo, that was a description as well as its name..........

Southern Hawker
   Decided to have a quick wander at Shapwick Heath, see what we can find there. NO Birds again, not to talk about anyway. I found a nice female Southern Hawker just off the path.

    Also had this Green-veined White here too.
