Old Blue Eyes

We ignored a White Tailed Eagle and a White Stork on the coast and headed for South West Norfolk today.

The name ‘Southern Migrant Hawker’ does not beligh in any way the beauty of these delicate dragonflies. Perhaps the alternative name of ‘Blue-eyed Hawker’ that has slipped into use is more appropriate. It does sum the beast up quite well. However I’m reluctant to use it because what’s sauce for the goose is sauce for the gander, and I’ not sure I could bear to call Norfolk Hawker ‘Green-eyed’

Anyway we came across about six of these smart dragons today. In the future they will become a regular part of our fauna here within Norfolk. I feel sure of that!
