    HI Dan,

    Are you sure about that Norwegian colour-ringed Black-headed Gull? I’ve seen J8LA there on several occasions, but not JL8A.

    Hi Dan,

    Just spotted the photo on Twitter – its J8LA. Ringed at Nybroa, Oslo, Norway on 3/4/2009.

    Spent nearly an hour this afternoon at the Aqueduct ponds. Up to 6 Brown Hawkers very active including two egg laying. Single male BB Chaser turned up eventually. Plenty of Damsels in tandem and egg laying. Azure, Blue-tailed and a couple of Emeralds which were nice to see. Unfortunately, the far pond, from Caton Rd, has dried up and usually quite good in spring. All activity in the larger central pool. A nice newish habitat creation and has been colonised by Common Blue & Brimstone.

    Then cycled up the slope to check the canal inlet to the N of the Aqueduct. A usual haunt of Emperor Dragonfly and a male obliged today.

    Cheers
    Steve
